Royse, to the Hillsborough City Council at a Special City Council meeting held on Thursday, August 23, 2012.  Appointing the three candidates to fill the three City Council seats allows the Town to cancel the November 6, 2012 Councilmember election and saves the Town approximately $15,000 in election costs.  Jess E.
