SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) -- Two weeks after the election, Spanish Fork residents finally have their last City Council member chosen.

The winner is: G. Wayne Anderson. He'll join the City Council in January, along with Councilman-elect Steve Leifsen and Mayor-elect Joe Thomas.

A ballot recount yesterday placed Anderson 12 votes ahead of Royden Hill for the second council seat up for election this year.

On election night, Hill finished two votes ahead of Anderson, but when absentee and provisional ballots were counted, Anderson pulled ahead by eight votes, prompting Hill to request a recount.

Meanwhile, a recount has also been called for in Goshen, where Patricia Bergener edged Rex Kay by one vote for a seat on the City Council. The recount will begin tomorrow at 8:30 a-m.
