A new mayor was appointed in Eagle Lake tonight after former mayor Brianna Anderson resigned last week.

Temporary Mayor John Ries called a Special City Council Meeting to fill the mayoral vacancy.  Tim Auringer, of Eagle Lake, will fill the role.  He formerly served as Mayor of the town from 2005–2016.

"He does bring with him 12 plus years of experience as mayor so he really understands the role of being a mayor and he knows what's important to Eagle Lake and has helped shaped the vision of where Eagle Lake is today," City Administrator Jennifer Bromeland said.

The city council members believe Auringer is eligible and qualified to fill the roll until the next general municipal election in November.
