Leathley served on the council for about a year after filling a vacant spot left by former Mayor and Council Member Lowell McGlothin. The seat opened up when McGlothin was elected a Clark County commissioner.
New Carlisle’s council meets on the first and third Monday of every month, at 7 p.m. in the Smith Park Shelter House. Council members earn about $4,800 annually.

Potential council members must be registered voters and New Carlisle residents. To be considered, candidates should complete and submit an application, which is available at the City Building at 331 S. Church St.
The application asks about service on community boards and committees, involvement in local events, why a resident wants to serve on council and what skills they would bring to the position.
“If you live in New Carlisle and enjoy the benefits of the city and want to be active in its decision-making, this is a position for you,” said Reynolds, who served on council for six years before being selected as mayor this month.
Applications for the position are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24.
