Tie in city council vote

With three seats on Clarkston City Council up for a vote, challengers Rick Detkowski, Jr., and Sue Wylie both got the nod in Tuesday’s election. Incumbent council members Sharron Catallo and Michael Sabol tied for the third available seat, however.

The votes will be recounted, said interim City Manager Rich Little.

If the tie persists, they will go to Oakland County board of canvassers where the issue will be determined by lot, as per state law.

About 71 percent of registered city voters, 599 including 172 absentee, cast ballots, Little said.

The vote count was:

Rick Detkowski, Jr., 28.76%, 344

Sue Wylie, 27.51%, 329

Sharron Catallo, 21.66%, 259

Michael G. Sabol, 21.66%, 259

WRITE-IN, 0.42%, 5
