Two new Duluth city councilors will take part in their first meetings later this month after a swearing-in ceremony Monday.

Councilors Zack Filipovich and Barb Russ will take the seats of now former councilors Dan Hartman and Jim Stauber. The event at the Sheraton Hotel recognized new councilors, and those leaving.

"I have never been more excited about a council coming in. I think we have a really good mix of folks that are dedicated to the operations of city government," Duluth Mayor Don Ness said.

Filipovich said "I want to use some of the economic development tools that we have in the city to make sure it continues to grow and prosper like it has been."

Howie Hanson was also sworn in at ceremony, although he has been filling Garry Krause's 4th District seat since November.
