The Grenada City Council confirmed Monday night that LaKeylah White is the new city manager.

The city council spoke with White during a special called meeting that surprisingly took place in open session.  The council usually discusses personnel matters in executive sessions.

No vote was taken at Monday night’s meeting, and this week marks White’s official start as city manager.

In a special called meeting last week, the city council voted 6-1 to hire White, 44, as city manager at an annual salary of $75,000.
