In a special meeting early yesterday evening, the Moundsville City Council met to fill a vacant seat.

Council members spent about 90 minutes interviewing three candidates. After the executive session interviews, council voted in Brianna Hickman for the seat. She works at the Community Foundation of the Ohio Valley.

When Hickman takes the oath of office from Moundsville City Clerk Sondra Hewitt for the first time, four women will have seats on Moundsville’s City Council.
