Niles City Council tiebreaker declares Travis Timm the winner; Durm asks for recount
The 2018 election is now over for the Niles City Council.
The two candidates for Ward 2 ended in a tie last Tuesday.
Incumbent Robert Durm and challenger Travis Timm drew slips of paper from a hat this morning.
Timm's said "elected," so he's the winner.
Durm then paid a $50 fee to the Berrien County Clerk's Office for a recount.
Officials say the recount will happen on November 20th at 9 a.m. at the Berrien County Board of Commissioners Office.
