Vergas' mayor will remain, but the council will see change.

Mayoral incumbent Dean Haarstick faced newcomer Tracey Buhl, and city council incumbent Myles Flateland was challenged by Kevin Zitzow and Paul Pinke. There were two seats open on the council.


"What this election showed, throughout the local, state and nationals, is people are looking for change. Change to make things better and be more responsive to the people," Haarstick said.
