JACKSON CENTER — Ken Gloyeske and Karen Woodruff were reelected to their seats on Jackson Center Village Council Tuesday.

The two seats on council were made contested by Jackson Center resident James DeVine. The unofficial results have Gloyeske with 244 votes and Woodruff with 253 votes. DeVine, got 187 votes.

Just last week, Council Member Jack Toomey retired from his position. With an open seat on council, DeVine has the ability to apply for that position.

Village Administrator Bruce Metz said the council will advertise for the open council seat and any and all interested residents may apply.

Also, The Jackson Township Ambulance Levy, which covers the Village of Jackson Center, unofficially passed with 484 for the levy and 271 against it. The Dinsmore Township EMS Levy passed as well, with 740 votes for the levy and 421 against.

“I am very pleased the residents of Jackson Township passed the rescue levy for rescue services,” Metz said.

The funds generated from these levies will help the Anna Rescue Service provide rescue service coverage for both Dinsmore and Jackson Townships.
