A March 1 election has been set to replace Clermont Town Councilman John Brady, whose term ends Dec. 31.

Filling the post normally would have taken place in elections Tuesday, but no one qualified this summer to run.

Qualifying for the Ward 2 seat is now set for Jan. 11-13 at Town Hall, 109 King St., according to an ordinance approved Tuesday night by the council. The fee is $43.20.

Voting will take place at Concord Baptist Church, 640 Main St.

The new council member could be sworn in at the council’s April meeting or in an earlier called meeting, Town Clerk Sandra Helton said. The winner’s term would begin March 7 and end Dec. 31, 2019.

Clermont voters did elect one new council member Tuesday night.

Joe McGoogan defeated Jimmy McDonald in a bid to fill a seat vacated by Lynn Adams, who left the council earlier this year.

Incumbent councilmen Eric Thomas and Seth Weaver will begin new four-year terms Jan. 1.
