City Council Election Dispute Continues in Dyersville


By Katie Stinson

DYERSVILLE, Iowa - It could be weeks before a decision is made on a city council election dispute in Dyersville. Mark Wagner ousted current councilman Dan Willenborg for an at-large city council seat.

Willenborg is arguing Wagner can't serve because he lives in his home near Earlville. An Election Contest Board is being put together to decide who will sit on the council, but that process is hitting a standstill because the two men can't agree on a third person for that board.

Dubuque County's Deputy Commissioner of Elections Tom O'Neil says he hopes to have the dispute resolved by mid-December.
