Longtime Lexington City Council member Kevin Stinnett was named chairman of the Budget, Finance and Economic Development Committee during Tuesday's meeting.
Stinnett, who was recently elected to a four-year at-large seat, has been on the council since 2005. There were no other nominations for the chairmanship of the powerful Urban County Council committee, which oversees budget and economic development. The council recently moved from six standing committees to four. The chairmen of the other three committees were elected earlier this month.
