Based on preliminary returns, candidate David Beamer was the apparent winner of the Position 4 seat, which was vacated when council member R. Scott Duncan declined to run.
Beamer was leading Charles "Chuck" Needles, with 55 percent of the vote, or 528-438.
The 29-year-old Beamer is a local businessman who said his main concerns were public safety, development of the city's infrastructure and the city's school system.
The three other Council positions up for election were all won by incumbents who ran unopposed.
The Position 5 council seat went to Bernard Yanke, who garnered 943 votes according to preliminary results. The Position 6 seat was returned to William Jenkins, who polled 928 votes and the Position 7 seat was won by Larry Dickerson, who gathered 960 votes.
All four candidates will serve four-year terms when they take office after the election results are certified later this month.
