HURON COUNTY - Kathleen Particka will lead the City of Bad Axe and Patricia DesJardins will lead the City of Caseville and they will have some new council members serving with them, according to unofficial results from the Huron County Clerk’s Office. In Bad Axe, Steve Perez, Eric Goebel and Clark McKimmy will serve their city. Todd Talaski and Jerald Ignash will be joined by Kenneth Rathje, who previously has served as a council member for the City of Caseville.

A special assessment for mosquito treatment passed overwhelmingly in Sebewaing Township. Voters in Caseville narrowly approved taxes worth almost $75,000 for streets. Voters in the North Huron School District narrowly defeated the borrowing of more than $8 million dollars for improvements.
