Mark elected to first turn as mayor of Belvedere

The Belvedere City Council has elected Vice Mayor Peter Mark to serve as mayor, while colleague Jane Cooper was chosen to fill the role of vice mayor.

The council at its Dec. 11 meeting voted unanimously to make the appointments. Mark takes over for outgoing Mayor Jim Lynch, who remains on the board.
