Sulphur Springs City Council members are expected to select a new mayor and mayor pro tem for the coming year at tonight’s regular monthly meeting.
While not set in stone, don't be surprised if Gary Spraggins is selected to serve as mayor. He's coming off a term as mayor pro tem, which usually precedes a mayoral term, and he's filled in admirably when called on to lead the meetings in the mayor's absence.
