RIENZI – A runoff election is scheduled for June 18 to determine who will fill the fifth alderman seat in Rienzi.
After Tuesday’s ballot count the spot was left undecided, with candidates Melissa Bearden Morgan and Harold W. Palmer tied with 45 votes each, and the single affidavit ballot counted Tuesday did not give an edge to either incumbent candidate.
The other four highest vote-getters for alderman were incumbent Sandra Williams, 58 votes; incumbent David Wayne Massey, 53 votes; Dale A. Leonard, 52 votes; and Betty J. Williams, 49 votes.
