The city council appointed Peggy Sherrets as their acting mayor Wednesday night after former mayor Jason Manus resigned. He has been charged with sexual abuse.
Sherrets says she wants to keep the community moving forward, and the best way to start healing is to move on with business as usual.
If Oelwein residents choose to challenge the council's decision from Wednesday, they would need to complete a petition with at least 157 signatures by next Friday. A special election would then follow the petition.
