Broken Bow has a new mayor. Cecil Burt was sworn in, along with councilmen Jim Franssen and Scott Spanel at Mondayâ€™s city council meeting. The swearing in ceremony was part of the â€˜sine dieâ€™ proceedings which hands the governing of the city from one mayor and council to the next.
The new mayor said he is going to work to learn how to run a city along with the councilâ€™s help. Franssen is new to the council, but not new to city government, as he has previous experience as a member of Broken Bowâ€™s city council.
