Mermis re-elected to Marion council

Melissa Mermis claimed a second term on Marion city council Monday after provisional ballots from April 5 were tallied and the vote certified.

The race had been close enough that eight provisional ballots counted Monday could have changed preliminary results, but Mermis held on to her council seat with 73 votes, seven more than third-place finisher John Wheeler.

Chris Costello was elected to the other council seat, garnering 170 votes.
