BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Beavercreek held its first regular meeting of the year with its new mayor Monday night.

Bob Stone, a longtime resident of Beavercreek, a business owner and Beavercreek High School graduate ran for city council in the November election, earning the most votes from voters.

Now, Stone said listening to the people is the most important role he can take – wanting to act as a unifier. The mayoral seat was previously held by Brian Jarvis.

This isn’t Stone’s first turn at city council, though.

Stone served as a City of Beavercreek councilman from January 2008 to December 2011, according to his Linkedin page. He has also been the owner of Home Buyer Consultants Inc. in Beavercreek for nearly 37 years.

The new mayor is also a 1971 Wright State University graduate with degrees in engineering and environmental health.

Monday night’s agenda featured ordinances regarding rezoning issues as well as allocating marriage money to mayor’s “designated fund,” according to the city’s website.

Beavercreek City Council meetings are held at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Monday of each month at City Hall, according to the city’s website.
