BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- A recount is not likely in one of the Stateline’s tightest races. Instead we could know in a couple of weeks just how close the votes are tallied for Belvidere Mayor.
Right now, just six votes make two-term Alderman Mike Chamberlain the city’s new leader over his opponent, four term alderman Mark Sanderson. Only one more absentee ballot hasn't been returned, so a recount probably won't happen.
Mayor Fred Brereton is retiring.
