LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The city of Shepherdsville has a new mayor.

Curtis Hockenbury was elected the new mayor at Tuesday night's city council meeting by a vote of 4-1, with one person not voting.

Hockenbury will serve the remaining two years of the current term.

A judge ruled former Mayor Scott Ellis didn't properly resign in February after a sex scandal, but he officially resigned earlier this month.
