Herdliska tabbed for temporary council seat

Two Solon council seats to be placed on general election ballot

By Doug Lindner
Solon Economist
SOLON– It will cost the City of Solon about $1,500 to add two council seats to the November general election ballot.
Council members voted at a regular meeting Aug. 3 to appoint former member Ron Herdliska on an interim basis to replace Dale Snipes, who resigned at the beginning of July.
Herdliska’s term on the council will be temporary, however, as he has no plans to fill out the remainder of Snipes’ term, which extends through 2019.
