Ottawa, Ohio (WIMA) - On Monday night the Village of Ottawa made their newest Councilman official.

David Michel took his oath of office and replaced Alan “Jeff” Ducey who resigned amid a fatal crash last month that killed two Columbus Grove women.

Ducey was driving northbound on State Route 65 and didn’t see that traffic in front of him has slowed.

New Councilman Michel resigned as a firefighter prior to taking his new position.
