An unusually large number of village government posts are up for election this fall in Fayette. Anyone wishing to become a candidate has a little more than a month to file a petition for office.
The terms of four council members plus the mayor position will expire this year.
Craig Rower is serving as the village’s acting mayor following the resignation of Anita VanZile in December. Julia Ruger was appointed to fill Rower’s council seat until the November vote.
The terms of council members Paul Shaffer and Ken Delphous also expire this year.
Petitions for candidacy are available at the village office or at the Board of Elections office in Wauseon. Completed petitions must be filed with the Board of Elections by 4 p.m. Aug. 20.
As of last week, only one petition had been taken out.
