The City of Bedford is reverting to a town system

Bedford City Council has held its last meeting before the city reverts to a town system of government.

But there won't be much change for the council after the city becomes part of Bedford County on July 1.

The News & Advance reports that six council members will become members of the new Town Council. They'll be joined by Robert Carson, who was elected to the Town Council in May. One council member is stepping down.

Tuesday's final meeting lasted about minutes, and much of the work involved tying up loose ends.
