Jerry Beech will be sworn in as the next mayor of the City of New Cordell Monday, April 15, 2019, but he’s not waiting until then to get started in his new role. Beech, who serves as executive director of Multi-County Youth Services, has taken some time off this week to familiarize himself with the city’s government and operations prior to beginning his new job as mayor.

At the top of Beech’s todo list as the new mayor, he said, is to get a handle on the city’s financial situation. With just over two months until the beginning of the next fiscal year, preparing and passing the city’s next budget is Beech’s top priority.

“First, I’m going to look at the city’s financials,” he said. “We’re going to do some trending and see what can be done. I’m going to look at utilization and the efficiency of our expenditures.”
