Despite Election Issues Plymouth Swore In Newly Elected Council Members

Despite issues with the November election, the Plymouth City Council swore in newly elected council members on Thursday night, and went to appoint a new city clerk. Meeting in special session, the council voted to accept the results of the November election and saw the swearing in of Peter Amoruso and Valarie Klinefelter to new four year terms. However it was noted that residents of the Zinfendel Ridge Subdivision, which was annexed into the city in 2012 but only began building homes in the last two years, did not vote in the council race due to a records error by the county. County officials said the issue had been corrected for future elections and that not enough voters were affected to affect the outcome of the election. Mayor Jon Colburn said he would be sending a letter to those residents excluded from the vote, explaining the situation. The council then went on to appoint Plymouth resident Linsey Clark as city clerk. The council also approved job descriptions for city manager and administrative analyst as the city seeks a permanent management team for the local government. The need for top level management is a top priority as interim city manager Carolyn Lehr has resigned her position, citing personal reasons. Lehr was appointed in September following the exit of Jeff Gardner.
