STEVENSVILLE — A week after half of the Stevensville Town Council resigned, the remaining members are starting to look for replacements, with the community watching to see if new appointees will resolve the political fighting that's rocked the town.

Just a couple of days after Mayor Brandon Dewey survived a recall vote, with 52% of voters wanting him to stay in office, two of the four council members stepped down.

Bob Michaelson and Robin Holcomb stepped aside in response to the election results.

Holcomb, who had served on the council for 11-years, said she could no longer do so with Dewey remaining in the mayor's chair.

That means remaining council members Jaime Devlin and Dempsey Vick will have the opportunity of appointing new members that share their viewpoint, and support of the mayor.

The town council is already taking applications and will discuss the appointment process in a virtual meeting which starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday and will be live-streamed on the Town of Stevensville website.
