Leader Staff Writer
In January Garland City councilman Kent Hughes passed away after a short battle with a brain tumor. The council mourned his death but needed to fill Hughes’ position.
Five men interviewed for the vacancy but in the end only one snagged the seat. All five Garland City men, Neil Anderson, Don Koyle, Josh Munns, Kent Menlove and Travis Johnson, interviewed with the council during Wednesday night’s work session.
Questions ranged from what they want to see changed in the city to their position on growth.
Munns is a lifelong member of Garland and serves on the Garland City Fire Department.
“I just want to help the city,” Munns said. “I’m always willing to help and I feel the need to step in.” Munns added road conditions would be a top priority and necessary budgeting would be needed to alleviate the problem.
Munns also voiced his support for industry in the valley, specifically a pig processing plant in Tremonton.
