Monday night was a new beginning for the Grand Junction City Council -- two new council members took their seats for the first time, and a longtime member of the council spent his first night as the new mayor.

Every May, the seven members of the city council choose who they want to serve as mayor and mayor pro tem.

Monday night, in a unanimous vote, they selected Bruce Hill to lead them. Hill has served on the council since 2003.

Council members also chose Teresa Coons to continue serving as mayor pro tem. Coons won relection after running unopposed during municipal elections in April.

In addition to the new leadership of the council, two new faces made their debut during the meeting. Council members Bill Pitts and Tom Kenyon were put to work right away, delivering proclamations and voting on a number of rezoning and annexation requests.

The new council says it looks forward to tackling some of the major issues that lie ahead, including the city's economy, building a new public safety center, and continuing to improve transportation across the city.
