The City Council considered two nominations for the open Ward 4 seat vacated by the resignation of David Bates in January. Felicia Martindale previously served on city’s street sales tax committee and also maintained memberships with the Love Augusta and Ignite Augusta groups. Mike Timberlake is a local realtor who is active on the city’s comprehensive plan steering committee and has served numerous positions in the Augusta Little League Baseball organization.
After discussing the two candidates’ applications, the City Council ultimately nominated and elected Felicia Martindale. Felicia officially took her seat at the February 21st meeting.
