Mayor Larry Jangula and the newly-elected members of Courtenay council were sworn-in at the inaugural meeting Monday.

Jangula, along with Couns. Manno Theos, Bob Wells and Erik Eriksson, will represent Courtenay on the Comox Valley Regional District board.

Jangula had sat on the CVRD board before being elected mayor in 2011 while Theos was a district director last term.

They will serve a one-year term — as motioned by Coun. Doug Hillian — who suggested an amendment to the staff recommendation for a two-year appointment.

In terms of voting strength on CVRD issues, Jangula has five votes and the others four for a total of 17 votes for Courtenay.
