It was business as usual for Dawsonville Mayor Mike Eason after he was officially sworn in to the office at the beginning of a city council meeting Monday night. After a quick photo with his family, he was back up on the bench to conduct the rest of the meeting. Eason, who has served as acting mayor since December, beat out former Mayor James Grogan in a March special election with 61.5 percent of the vote. Eason will serve out Grogan’s unexpired term, which runs through December 2019. Grogan was removed from office in October of last year.
