BELMONT COUNTY, OHIO (WTRF) – The St. Clairsville City Council held a special meeting Thursday evening. The purpose of the meeting was to interview candidates for the vacant Ward 3 Council seat.

Back in August, former Belmont County Attorney and St. Clairsville City Councilman Mark Thomas pleaded guilty to mail fraud. Soon after, Thomas resigned from the St. Clairsville City Council.

Tonight, council interviewed each candidate in executive session, so details are limited at this time.
