A C Wharton plans to take the city mayor's oath at noon Monday, spokeswoman Rhonda Turner said. She said the location and other details would be released shortly.
Earlier that day, Wharton is expected to turn in his resignation letter as Shelby County mayor to County Commission Chairwoman Joyce Avery.
Avery will be sworn in as new county mayor at 10:30 a.m. that day by former U.S. Atty. David Kustoff in the County Commission chambers, said the commission's chief administrator, Steve Summerall.
