Central's city council has now filled it's final empty seat after a run0off between Republicans Jason Ellis and Ralph Washington.  Central voters elected Jason Ellis to fill that fifth and final council seat.

There were also two school district property tax renewals on the ballot. The first one aimed at getting money to help keep the student-teacher ration in the classrooms low. The second would raise money to maintain and improve school employees' salaries and benefits.

Both passed easily.
