Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin City Council President Bridget Boyle was sworn in Tuesday as the acting mayor of Tiffin during a ceremony in front of the Seneca County Justice Center.
Former Mayor Aaron Montz’s final day in office was Monday, as he goes on to lead the Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership as its next president and CEO.
“It’s an honor to serve the city of Tiffin and I look forward to seeing who council chooses to fill the position going forward,” Boyle said.
During a city council meeting on June 20, Boyle stated she intended to fulfill her obligation to be acting mayor for up to 30 days, but would not be seeking the remainder of Montz’s term.
According to the city charter, council has 30 days following the vacancy to elect a new mayor or it will be up to the common pleas court judge to choose. Council may choose any qualified elector of the city of Tiffin, and per rules set by council, candidates were required to submit their self-nominations by June 27.
Four candidates — Brian Cole, Dawn Iannantuono, Zack Perkins, and Bryce Riggs — have submitted their nominations and are under consideration by council to fill the mayor’s seat.
Tiffin City Council intends to have a special meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, July 11, to allow for additional follow-up comments regarding the selection of a new mayor, and to vote on the nominations.
