Mayor Kasim Reed is being sworn in for a second term in office Monday afternoon.
Reed was scheduled to give an inaugural address after being sworn in at noon Monday along with members of Atlanta's City Council. Voters elected Reed to another four-year term last November.
Reed said his top priority during his second term will be tackling a nearly $1 billion backlog of road projects, pothole repairs and other infrastructure needs. The mayor plans to seek a bond referendum worth up to $250 million, which voters would have to approve in order to fund the project.
An inaugural reception for the public is scheduled to be held at Atlanta City Hall early Monday evening.
Channel 2’s Dave Huddleston us gathering is covering the ceremony and will have live updates on Channel 2 Action News starting at 4.
