Rice appointed as mayor, two named to council
The Henning City Council has appointed a new mayor following the passing of long-time mayor Jim Hermanson. During the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Councilman Jerimiah Rice was appointed mayor and Beno Lohse to the vacant council seat left by Rice.
City Clerk/Treasurer Gina Ellingson said that there were no inquiries since the passing of Hermanson regarding filling mayor’s role. However, she said Lohse offered his services as a councilman if needed. Ellingson said that Rice had shown an interest in the position of mayor. “It’s more of a willingness rather than an interest, I just know that someone has to fill these shoes,” said Rice.
