Costello wins, second council seat in doubt

Chris Costello is a clear winner in the race for Marion City Council, but who will get the second seat remains in the air until after county commissioners canvass votes Monday morning.

Melissa Mermis got 69 votes, John Wheeler got 64 votes, Michel Soyez got 63. Jerry Dieter got 47 votes.

County clerk Tina Spencer said there are eight provisional votes still to be decided by county commissioners. With the votes between Mermis, Wheeler and Soyez being so close, the provisional votes could swing who wins the second seat.
