New Seneca city councilman sworn in

(KNZA)--The Seneca City Council officially has a new member.

Lukas Koch took his seat on the Council Wednesday evening after being sworn in by City Clerk Michele Spring.

The Council voted last month to appoint Koch to fill the Ward 1 council position left vacant by the resignation of Kylee Bergstrom. He was the lone candidate to express an interest in filling the position.

Also sworn in Wednesday evening for another term were Mayor Joe Mitchell, 2nd Ward councilwoman Alice Lackey and 3rd Ward councilman Jim Mitchell. They faced no opposition during the November general election.

Following discussion, the Council approved a $1 per hour cost of living increase for city employees for 2022.

The Council also approved a request from the local Drivers License Office for an exception to the city's truck route for January 10-13 to allow them to give the CDL license exam on those days.

The Council was told there are only nine offices in Kansas that give the exam.
