The winners in the recent Joliet City Council election will be sworn in Monday.
The swearing-in ceremony at 6:30 p.m. will replace the usually scheduled workshop meeting.
The ceremony will include statements from newly elected council member Jim McFarland as well as outgoing Councilman Don Fisher. Re-elected council members Jan Quillman and Michael Turk also will make statements.
Fisher did not win re-election in the close race among the three incumbents.
McFarland, a former city employee who worked for the late Mayor Arthur Schultz, is making his first appearance on the council. He previously has held public office as the clerk and as a trustee for Troy Township. McFarland also is former chairman of the Joliet Junior College board.
Turk is the senior council member with 26 years of service. Quillman will start her third term.
