WAHPETON, N.D. — Wahpeton officially has a new mayor.

City Councilman Steve Dale had been handling the mayoral duties since Mayor Meryl Hansey resigned in late summer in the midst of a battle with cancer.

The Daily News reports that the City Council on Monday voted 8-0 to appoint Dale as mayor, and he was sworn in. He’ll fill out the rest of Hansey’s term, which expires in June.
