Akeley Council results: Who will serve?
Akeley's election did not result in Terry Chalich claiming a seat on the council due to Cliff Johnson's decision to withdraw.
Johnson's name was on the ballot and he received 64 votes; Chalich earned 58.
According to statute, Johnson must officially decline the position in January. At that time, the council may appoint, at their discretion.
The council is not mandated to appoint the candidate who appeared on the ballot receiving the next highest number of votes.
