COLUMBIA CITY â€” Councilman Dan Weigold was reappointed to serve his third year as president of the Columbia City Common Council.
A vote is held every January for the position, and Weigold was reappointed by unanimous vote.
Weigold is currently serving his seventh year as councilman, and said he has learned a lot and enjoys his time serving the city.
â€śIâ€™m still Dan â€” just a common guy,â€ť Weigold said. â€śItâ€™s neat being part of something bigger than yourself.â€ť
If for some reason Mayor Ryan Daniel is unable to do his job, as council president Weigold is second in command.
â€śItâ€™s a unique position,â€ť Weigold said.
â€śIt gives you a different perspective of how the city is run.
â€śI hope that never happens. But if it does, I feel comfortable we could still make this place run.â€ť
