People in Old Towne Bellevue have a new representative. Steve Carmichael was sworn in as their new City Councilman Monday night.
Carmichael will serve for the remainder of former Councilman Scott Houghtaling's term. Houghtaling resigned earlier this year, after accepting a job in another state.
Carmichael took the mid-October special election in a landslide. Sixty-three percent of voters cast their ballot in his favor.
Carmichael's family was in attendance, as he took the oath of office Monday.
Carmichael is a longtime Bellevue resident. He worked for the city for more than two decades, and currently serves as the Chief Building Inspector in Council Bluffs.
