Mayor Troy Brumbalow had a little help bringing Tuesday’s Cumming City Council meeting to order. Charlie Westbrook, who celebrated his 11th birthday on Tuesday, banged the mayor’s gavel to start the meeting, helped lead the Pledge of Allegiance and had his own seat among elected officials at the meeting, where Brumbalow also issued a proclamation marking Aug. 18, 2020, as "Charlie Westbrook Day" in the city and named him honorary mayor.
