The Hartley City Council went from four members to five on Monday night.
The council voted unanimously to appoint Greg Cotter to the seat vacated by Roxann Swanson, who resigned in May to accept the city administrator's position. Cotter previously ran for council in 2021 and finished fourth in a field of five candidates vying for three seats.
"I think the citizens spoke with the election," said Council Member Mary Westphalen.
Cotter, Brian Myers and Matt Dolphin applied to fill the vacancy. Myers previously served on the council from 2017-2021 and finished last in 2021 election.
