“I believe this is a record number of new aldermen in Batavia,” Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke said.
Schielke, who began his first term as Batavia mayor in 1981, also was sworn into office for a ninth term after running for re-election in April with no opposition.
Taking their seats on the City Council were 2nd Ward Alderman Martin Callahan, 3rd Ward Alderman Kyle Hohmann, 4th Ward Alderman Jamie Saam, 5th Ward Alderman Steve Vasilion, 6th Ward Alderman Nick Cerone and 7th Ward Alderman Drew McFadden.
A great deal of longevity is leaving the City Council. Fifth Ward Alderman Eldon Frydendall has been on the City Council for 32 years, 4th Ward Alderman James Volk has been on the City Council for almost 19 years and 6th Ward Alderman Robert Liva has been on the City Council for eight years. They lost their bids for re-election.
