BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills will be holding an installation ceremony on Tuesday, March 20 to swear in a new mayor and vice mayor. Vice Mayor Julian A. Gold, MD will be installed as mayor and Councilmember John Mirisch will be installed as vice mayor. The incoming mayor and vice mayor will be formally elected by the presiding City Council for one-year terms at the start of March 20 meeting.

The installation ceremony is open to the public and free to attend. It will be held at 7 p.m. at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences located at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard. The city bears no cost for using the Academy facilities.  Free parking is available in nearby structures.

The current mayor for the city of Beverly Hills is Lili Bosse. Bosse held her final Walk with the Mayor outing on Monday, March 19. “I am so grateful for the support from the hundreds of people who have joined us each Monday!” said Mayor Bosse. “We are a healthier, stronger and closer community because of this special time together.”

The Monday walks were Mayor Bosse’s signature #bhhealthycity initiative, which brought together all three elements of the program: Healthy People, Healthy Businesses and Healthy Government. While walkers get exercise, they have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with the mayor and other City officials; they learn about the City’s history and are introduced to local businesses, both longtime and newly established.

The mayor and vice mayor positions are elected each year by the City Council; the vice mayor customarily becomes the mayor.  Councilmembers are elected at-large to four-year terms. For questions or additional information call (310) 285-2456.
