Posted: Updated:
CHISHOLM, MN -

Chisholm city council has appointed their newest city councilor. 

Cheyenne Mikkola-Rahja was appointed in a 3 to 2 vote at Wednesday night's meeting. 

Current mayor, Mary Jo Rahja vacated her council seat at the end of January, after being appointed to serve as the mayor.

Former Mayor Todd Scaia announced his resignation at the end of 2017. 

The resolution to appoint Mikkola-Rahja was brought forward by councilor Tracy Campbell, after councilor Kevin Scaia's appointment option was shot down by the council. 

Chisholm's City Administrator says Mikkola-Rahja has no relation to the mayor.
