        Carroll Township in Ottawa County is assured of new faces on its board of trustees in 2018 with no incumbents on the ballot in Tuesday’s election.

        Richard Keiser, Jordan Moore, Sandy Shearon and Andrew Thompson are in the race for two seats on the three-member board.

       With few exceptions, local races in the Nov. 7 election for seats on village councils, school boards and township boards of trustees in Wood County are marked by a lack of competition.

        Incumbents dominate in Tuesday’s race for four seats on Helena Village Council but only one name will appear on the ballot.

        The name of incumbent Connie Carnicom is on the ballot but to fill the other three seats voters will have to write in the names of Paul Damschroder, Dean Hetrick and Leland Reimer, who are also incumbents.

        Voters in the Woodmore School District will put at least one new face on the board of education in Tuesday’s election as two incumbents have decided to not seek re-election.

        Corinna Bench and Joe Liszak will be stepping down from the board and their seats are being sought by Chad Bringman, Jan Busdeker and Andy Miller.

        A resolution opposing the application of sewage sludge on local fields has been approved by Walbridge Village Council.

        After the resolution’s third reading Wednesday, council voiced its approval of the measure, which supports a similar resolution approved in September by the Lake Township trustees.
