ST CHARLES, Mo. — Incumbent Dan Borgmeyer will face Tom Besselman in April's general election for St. Charles mayor.
During Tuesday's primary election for the City of St. Charles, voters narrowed down the two from a list of three candidates. On the primary ballot were current Mayor Borgmeyer, Besselman and Venetia Powell.
According to the St. Charles County Election Authority, Borgmeyer received about 48.2% of votes (2,447), Besselman received about 35.5% (1,805) and Powell received about 16.3% (828).
This election came at a crucial time for St. Charles City voters.
In October, the city announced Elm Point Wellfield, which is its primary source of drinking water, is contaminated.
The city launched its own investigation and the Environmental Protection Agency tested the wellfield to determine who contaminated it and who needs to clean it up.
Neither has released results, but the EPA announced it will hold a public meeting in February.
