A special meeting of Greencastle Borough Council Friday afternoon resulted in a reorganization of the board.

After a 6-0 vote, Steve Miller took over as council president. Councilman Craig Myers was absent.

The move came after former council head Frank Webster Jr. opted to step aside after some health problems.

Webster resigned as president July 18, but rescinded his resignation earlier last week after getting a second opinion and realizing his situation was not as dire as once thought.

He said he Friday he will stand by his decision to step down and nominated Miller as his successor.

"It goes a long way in the unity of this council," Miller said after accepting the role. "I'll work my best to serve you as we work hard to serve our community."

The vice president of the group also changed Friday, with H. Duane Kinzer, who had been vice president, and Larry Faight both receiving nominations.

A tie led to Mayor Ben Thomas casting his deciding vote for Faight.

"I will work with Mr. Miller to continue the great work of council," Faight said.
