It'll be a few months, at least, before a county board seat is filled in Vermilion County.
The District 7 seat of the late-Larry Mills won't be filled until September at earliest. That's from officials in Vermilion County.
The death of Larry Mills the night of July 4th stunned the county board and many others. The vacancy was not addressed at Tuesday's board meeting in Danville.
Mills was elected as a Democrat, so his seat will fall to the Vermilion County Democratic party to select an appropriate replacement on the board.
That choice will then be presented to the full board. It may be settled in September.
The appointee will be expected to fill out the remainder of Mills' two-year term.
