All six of the council members were present to verify the April 3 election results. Kelly D. Messerli, who ran an uncontested race for Ward II, was sworn in as the newest member of the Board of Alderman. Present for the event were his wife Emily and children Spencer, 10, Lexy and Kooper, both 4.
Incumbent Joe Coffelt was sworn in for another term as Ward I Alderman after defeating Ron Baker. Lanny Ash was sworn in for another term as Ward III Alderman after running an uncontested race.
Outgoing Ward II Alderman Charlie Roll was presented with a certificate for his 11 years service on the council.
In other business, the council approved three ordinances. The first ordinance was one accepting the election results. The second was accepting closing of a street to through traffic for a May 5 event of the Eagles Club. The third was an ordinance recognizing state requirements for safety training by OSHA for receiving the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the new storm drain work.
