The county council saw a changing of the guard Tuesday night as councilors elect Vincent Chiravalle, Sharon Stover and Mike Wismer took the reins from Frances Berting, Jim Hall and Ken Milder.
A new chairman and vice chairman were also elected.
Councilor Michael Wheeler was elected as chairman, while Mike Wismer was elected as vice chair. Wheeler and Wismer were both voted in unanimously.
They were also the only nominees for the seats.
Councilors also decided on how to proceed with filling the councilor vacancy left by Jim West’s resignation. After a 5-1 vote, council decided they would solicit interest from the public by way of letters. Wheeler voted against the motion.
Councilor Robert Gibson said that if West’s term had less time left in it, he would consider appointing someone to replace him. However, since the term expires in 2010, he suggested that council solicit interest from the public.
