Funeral arrangements are pending for Doug Weems, an original member of Gadsden’s City Council.
Weems, 79, died Wednesday.
He was elected to the council in 1986, as the city switched from a commission form of government, and ultimately served four terms, winning re-election in 1990, 1994 and 1998.
Weems also owned Gadsden Sew and Vac on Broad Street for many years.
