TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - It's the last commission meeting for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and two other city commissioners.

Next week, the city welcomes three new faces, but right now, Mayor Gillum and the others still have some work to do. 

How will Tallahassee remember this city commission? Well, it really depends on who you talk to.

Some say they're ready for new leadership, but others are reflecting on what this current commission has done for the city.

Andrew Gillum was first elected as a city commissioner in 2003, before becoming mayor four years ago. 

Commissioner Gil Ziffer has served since 2009, and Nancy Miller came in a year later.

This is the final city commission meeting for all three. We caught up with Commissioner Scott Maddox just before the meeting started.

He said it's been an honor to serve with each one of them. 

"I helped Andrew Gillum in his first election in 2003. He came in as a city commissioner when I was leaving as mayor, so I've watched his good work over this period of time," said Maddox. 

Wednesday's meeting includes more on the plans for the new public safety complex and for developing affordable senior housing in the city's Southside.

The city also honored Joshua Quick, the man who risked his life to stop the shooter at Hot Yoga Tallahassee.
