The next mayor of Lake Lillian could be Kenneth Wittman, if he accepts the job.
With no candidates filing for the mayor’s position, Wittman was the top vote-getter with 13 write-in votes.
City Clerk Susan Jungclaus tells the West Central Tribune that Wittman had not sought the office, and told the city he was undecided about accepting the post. He is currently a City Council member.
If he does not accept the post, the City Council must appoint a council member to serve as mayor. It would then also need to appoint someone to the City Council position.
Current Mayor Ross Wittman did not seek re-election.
There were write-in votes for 11 people. The top three were Wittman with 13 votes, followed by Donnovan Garberich with 12, and and Gary Kaiser with 10.
