Last week during a special Hayden Town Council meeting, the council voted to appoint Councilmember Tommy Lagunas as the mayor of Hayden. Maria Munoz will remain as vice mayor. Munoz declined the position of mayor and suggested another member be appointed. This vote came following the resignation by former Mayor Charles Vega. Vega had to resign after pleading guilty to a felony.

During the regular town council meeting the council handled several housekeeping items including the transfer of unencumbered 2012-13 budget appropriations from the general contingency. The council approved the library agreement with Gila County, and approved the use of lights for a volleyball fundraiser. The council also approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Town of Winkelman for police protection. The cost of services for the Town of Winkelman will be increased based on the actual cost to employ an officer.

The council also approved opening the swimming pool after the fireworks.
