Therefore, the two candidates, Justin Hein and Ashley Benny, will be sworn into office at the School Board's reorganization meeting." Accounting to Mayor Justin Hein, there will not be any position to fill in any of the city positions. Therefore, it appears that Bunceton will not be holding an April election this year.
