Behnke Selected As Mayor, Walters Elected Vice Mayor of Battle Creek
Battle Creek’s Mayor and Vice Mayor have now been selected, in a split vote by the City Commission Tuesday night.
For this session, all nine commissioners will serve three year terms as opposed to the normal two years, after a previous vote to move city elections to even numbered years. Starting in 2020, commissioners will once again serve two year terms.
The commissioners also approved their schedule for the next year, which will stay mostly the same, with meetings on the first and third Tuesday of every month.
