Karl Hauch will once again serve as the mayor of Bruderheim.
 
Hauch, as well as all six Bruderheim councillors, were elected by acclamation. This will be his third term.
 
"I appreciate the opportunity of being acclaimed. I feel that's a vote of confidence from the residents of our community and I'm glad to see that we have some turnover on council. [It's] unfortunate that folks have to move on but we've got some great young people coming in," Hauch said.
 
"I'm glad for the opportunity to try and make a positive difference for our community in the next four years."
  
Some of the things he is looking forward to seeing in the community over the next few years are the hemp facility ramping up business, a new playground coming to the school and bringing in more businesses to the town.
 
He also expects some challenges coming their way, namely a lot of responsibilities that are being passed down to municipal governments. Hauch gave increasing policing costs and the reduction in some MSI as examples.
 
"The opportunity to maybe align ourselves more with other municipalities in our region, I think will be a key for going forward for our town, even more so than it has been in the past," he said. "I think our council will be up for that and we certainly are looking for residents' input."
 
George Campbell, Len Falardeau, Wayne Olechow and Judy Schueler are back on town council, joined by Dayna Jacobs and Ashley Carter.
 
According to Hauch, he is happy to have three women on council; he says some communities don't have many women in local politics.
