The City of Redlands is touting the seating of the City Council on Dec. 4 in advance of the city's quasquicentennial, celebrating 125 years since Redlands incorporated in 1888.
"As one of its first orders of business, at the Dec. 4 City Council meeting the Redlands City Council will welcome a familiar face," a city spokesman said in an announcement. "Newly elected City Council Member Pat Gilbreath returns to the Council two years after her last term. Gilbreath had previously served 17 years on the Council.
"Gilbreath, along with Pete Aguilar, who was re-elected to a second full term on the City Council, City Clerk Sam Irwin, who was elected to his first full term following his appointment in 2009, and newly elected City Treasurer Robert Dawes, will each take the Oath of Office at the City Council meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the City Council Chambers, 35 Cajon St.," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said.
The city's 125th Anniversary celebration kicked off Saturday Dec. 1 with the Redlands Christmas Parade.
To mark the occasion, "local photographer Stephen Wormser created a portrait of the 125th Anniversary Year City Council, including Aguilar, Gilbreath, and Council Members Paul Foster, Jon Harrison and Bob Gardner," Baker said.
The portrait will hang in council chambers during the anniversary year, Baker said.
