New Yakima City Council members are getting up to speed as it gets closer to the new year when they get to work. It's also a time when two current longtime council members, Bill Lover and Maureen Adkison will step down. City Manager Cliff Moore says new council members Brad Hill, Kay Funk and Jason White are already meeting with city officials. "Next Tuesday our senior staff will meet with the new council members. It's an exciting time."
Moore says they'll spend the month of December studying issues and will go to work in January as new council members. They'll sworn into office on January 2.
