Birmingham’s new mayor, William Bell, was installed Tuesday.

Bell, a Democrat, had been a Jefferson County commissioner since November 2008. He was elected mayor last month to finish out the remaining 19 months of Larry Langford’s term. Langford was removed as mayor last year after he was convicted on 60 federal charges related to the county’s sewer debt refinancing.
