A life of service: Palestine City Councilman Jim Yelverton dies at age 82



“I am truly sorry for the family’s loss,” Thomas said in an email to the Herald-Press. “I appreciate Mr. Yelverton’s years of service to the city and the community. He will be missed.”

Ellis said at this point, the city is in contact with the Texas Secretary of State's office to determine what will be done in regard to Yelverton's position, since his place on the council “is an unexpired term.”

“I believe it's going to require a special election to be held, but how we get to that point we're still working on,” she said. “We're still working out the details.”
