The Silver Lake City Council met in a brief, five-minute meeting Monday night to canvass the votes from the Nov. 4 election.
Of the 450 voters registered in Silver Lake, 243 ballots were cast. 
Bruce Bebo received 202 votes for mayor and there were 13 write-in votes, including Mercedes Nowak, Ken Merrill, Josh Mason, Keri Mills, Tim Grenke, Barry Kratzke, Eric Nelson, Jen Venier, James Lewandowski and Daryl Luthens.
No one filed for either of the two open four-year councilor terms, but a total of 127 write-ins were cast.
Josh Mason and Ken Merrill topped the write-ins for councilor. Mason had 16 votes and Merrill had 12.
The Council will approach Mason and Merrill about filling the open council seats. If neither are interested, Bebo will have to appoint individuals in January.
