Oelwein Council Makes Mayor Decision

Photo by Roger King

The city of Oelwein is moving forward, by appointing a new mayor.

At last night’s special council meeting, the council voted to make an appointment to fill the mayoral seat, vacated by Jason Manus, who resigned after being charged with sexually abusing two girls.

After long discussion over the options of making an appointment or calling for a special election along with how dates would affect their decisions, the council moved to make an appointment to fill the seat.

Mayor Pro-tem Peggy Sherrets was then named to the post.

The council also then moved to make an appointment to fill Sherret’s council seat, and named Ted Malget to fill it until the next regular election, which comes up in a little over a year.

Residents still may petition for a special election to fill the two seats; 157 signatures would be needed. Documents for the petition may be obtained, and submitted, to the Fayette County Auditor’s office.
