District 2 supervisors Wayman Newell was elected to the position of board president Monday. He served as vice-president in 2009.
Supervisors Ray Boswell and outgoing president Hank Florey voted in favor of the appointment. District 4 supervisor Joe Norwood abstained.
After being appointed to the post, Newell announced that he would delay the vote on a new vice-president.
"We've got a board member off today and I wanted it to be a full board when we elect a vice president," said Newell.
District 3 supervisors Craig Hitt was not at Monday's meeting. He's expected to be present at the next meeting Jan.19.
At that time, Newell said he board will likely vote for a new vice-president.
