The St. Elmo City Council will meet this Thursday evening to pick a successor to Randy Watson, three days after Watson stepped down from the city's mayoral post.
Watson surprised aldermen on Monday night when he submitted a brief letter of resignation, then left the council's regularly scheduled meeting.
The council voted to have Alderman Jayson Porter conduct mayoral duties for the remainder of the meeting and recessed after completing scheduled matters.
The council will recovene at 7 p.m. this Thursday to choose an interim mayor.
