District 9 Commissioner Al Tillman will once again serve as Mayor Pro Tem for Macon-Bibb County. The Mayor Pro Tem will fill in to chair meetings when the Mayor is unable to. For example, if Mayor Reichert is unavailable to act as Chair at Board of Commissioners’ Meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Tillman will step in and perform those duties. It is Tillmans third time as Mayor Pro Tem. The Mayor Pro Tem is chosen through a popular vote of the Commissioners.

The Committee on Committees (which comprises Mayor Pro Tem Al Tillman, District Three Commissioner Elaine Lucas, and Mayor Robert Reichert) has assigned commissioners to committees. The committees are Operations & Finance, Public Safety, Economic & Community Development, and Facilities & Engineering. Chairs and Vice Chairs of those committees will be chosen at the January 28, 2020 Committee Meetings.
