UPDATE: New Carlisle council fails to select new council member

Three candidates had applied for the vacant seat made available after former council member Aaron Leighty resigned after moving out of the city. Becky McKenzie and Amy Hopkins each received three votes from council members. Kathy Wright did not receive a vote.

A majority vote by the council is needed to make a selection.
