A new face will appear on the Collinsville City Council following the Tuesday election and an incumbent will keep his seat.
Tony Fuhrmann will claim the council seat left vacant by Richard Stehman, who won an unopposed bid to serve as the city’s next mayor. Current Mayor John Miller is retiring after the expiration this April of his term.
Councilperson Anthony J. Hausmann will also retain his seat following Tuesday’s vote.
Voters were asked to pick two of three candidates running for the open seats. Unofficial results show Fuhrmann obtained the most votes, 1,2111, or about 41% of total votes cast. Hausmann finished second with 1,033 votes or about 35% of the total.
Both candidates overcame Catherine Demers, who garnered 746 votes or just under 25% of total votes.
