IMPERIAL — City Councilman Doug Cox was named mayor for 2001-02 at Wednesday night's City Council meeting here.
Cox, who served as mayor in 1989, is a native of Imperial and is water master for the Imperial Irrigation District.
Of his priorities as mayor, Cox said: "I want to clean up the city. With a nuisance abatement ordinance in place, we can do that."
Cox said there has been a problem with discarded appliances in alleyways and recreational vehicles parked on city streets beyond the allowed time limit.
