The Carroll County and Grayson County boards of supervisors have chosen new chairmen to lead the localities in 2013.
The Carroll supervisors met briefly Monday to select leaders for 2013.
“This will be my last official act as chairman,” noted Sam Dickson, the at-large representative and county board leader for 2012.
He thanked his fellow county officials for the good year, even if there were a couple of unspecified hiccups along the way.
When the time came to select a new chairman, Dickson nominated Supervisor David Hutchins to succeed him.

With no other nominations, Supervisor Tom Littrell made a motion to elect Hutchins as chairman.
Five supervisors approved the motion, while Hutchins abstained.
Then Hutchins nominated Fancy Gap Supervisor Phil McCraw for vice chairman.
Five supervisors approved the nomination on a motion by Supervisor Josh Hendrick.
“We will do our best this year to move forward — I think there’s a lot of opportunities,” Hutchins reacted.
The Grayson supervisors held an organizational meeting Jan. 4 to make appointments for chairman, deputy clerk of court and Board of Zoning Appeals members.
Mike Maynard was appointed to replace David Sexton as chairman, and Kenneth Belton will serve as vice chairman.
Mitch Smith was chosen to serve as deputy clerk of court and Gary Ballard and Tony Goodman were appointed to serve on the Grayson Board of Zoning Appeals.
Also at the meeting, the board decided to continue holding regularly scheduled meetings the second Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. and to continue scheduling public hearings for 7 p.m.
The one change made to the routine meeting schedule was the time for the county administrator’s report, which now changes from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.
