BROOKINGS, Ore. – The City of Brookings has new leadership after a wild couple of months.
In a press release Wednesday, the city announced Isaac Hodges, who was appointed to the city council last year, was appointed Mayor during Tuesday’s special meeting.
During that same meeting, Brooking’s Planning Commission member Clayton Malmberg was appointed to the city council seat vacated by Hodges.
On Monday, Phoebe Pereda was also appointed to city council.
These appointments were made after the previous mayor and two city council members were recalled last month for their support of City Manager Janell Howard. She was charged with misdemeanor theft and 2022.
The Curry County DA ‘s office later reduced Howard’s charge to a violation after she pled no contest.
