It’s official: Elyria mayor faces recall election

There will be a recall election in Elyria.

Today, the recall petition was certified by Clerk of Council Art Weber after the county Board of Elections determined that 530 of the additional 902 signatures turned in by Stand Up Elyria were valid.

No date has been set for the recall election, which seeks to oust Elyria Mayor Bill Grace. It could  take place between Dec. 12 and Dec. 27. Council will decide the date at a special meeting Nov. 18.
