The Graysville Board of Mayor and Commissioners appointed Gary Fritts as the town's new judge at its November meeting.
Fritts has been serving as town judge for the last few months, but since a new Graysville Board of Mayor and Commissioners was elected on Nov. 4, he needed to be appointed again, according to Fritts.
Fritts is a Dayton native and has worked as an attorney at law for the past 35 years.
The new town judge has held a variety of positions throughout his career. These include general sessions judge and probate judge for Rhea County, assistant district attorney general for Rhea and six other counties, Rhea County Attorney, city attorney for the Town of Graysville, and city attorney for Spring City.
Fritts replaces Darren Gibson, who is now employed in Chattanooga.
As Grayville's town judge, Fritts is responsible for administering justice in traffic court and in issues pertaining to ordinance violations in the town. The Graysville Town Court meets the third Thursday of every month at the Graysville City Hall.
"I try to be fair, equal, compassionate and hard when I need to be," said Fritts.
The newly elected Graysville Board of Mayor and Commissioners will meet for the first time at 6 p.m. on Dec. 11 at the Graysville City Hall.
