Odom appointed to Brantley Council seat

Kris Odom was selected to fill the vacancy on the Brantley City Council at Tuesday’s meeting.

The place opened up in District Two with the resignation of Brian Morgan at last month’s council meeting.

“I believe that he will represent District Two and all of Brantley in a professional manner,” Mayor Bernie Sullivan wrote in a memo to council members.

Odom is originally from Covington County, and he and his wife Tara White Odom have two children, Parker and Grant.

He began teaching at Andalusia as an assistant football coach under Paul Woolley, and he has been at Brantley High School since 2003.

In other business, the mayor also addressed the political sign situation in town.

He pointed out that under Brantley city ordinances, signs aren’t allowed on the city right-of-way inside the city limits.

Removed signs have been gathered outside city hall.
