McMinnville officials will be meeting Tuesday night with the only measure on the agenda to say good-bye to the old and usher in the new.Taking the oath first on Tuesday will be incoming Mayor Jimmy Haley. He will be followed by incumbent Alderman Rick Barnes, who successfully ran to fill the two-year vacant spot left by the departure of Junior Medley, and newcomers Ben Newman, Jimmy Bonner and Mike Neal as aldermen.Once the old board adjourns, the new board will be seated. While the new board can wait until the next regular session to begin business, Haley says he is in favor of hitting the ground running by filling the open seat made available by his successful bid for mayor.
