UHRICHSVILLE (WJER) - An at-large council member in Uhrichsville is moving to the head of the meeting table, where there’s still two vacancies to fill.
Uhrichsville Democratic Central Committee Members have selected Buck Cottrell as the next council president, beating out former mayors Rick Dorland and Terry Culbertson, along with at-large Councilman Bob Baker. He replaces Mark Haney, who stepped down as council president to become mayor.
Democrats now have to name someone to fill Cottrell’s at-large council seat by January 25th. Uhrichsville Council is also still accepting applications for the open Ward 1 seat since no one ran for that in last year’s elections.
