Cave City has a new mayor and his face is familiar to many around the community.
Now-former councilman Jonas Anderson, 34, was elected mayor by a vote of 6-0 by the Cave City Council on Tuesday night during its monthly meeting. He takes the place of Ron Burge, who resigned earlier this month.
Anderson, who was appointed to the council in 2007, works for the Northcentral Arkansas Educational Services Cooperative as a computer tech. He’s a familiar face to many parents, students and school staff around the city.
