Joe Cox and Jonathon Lewallen will be filling the seats formerly occupied by Debbie Bobbitt and Roberta Phillips, last year’s president. Cox defeated Bobbitt in the November election. Lewallen ran unopposed as Phillips did not seek re-election to the five-member board that includes parts of Miami Twp. and Moraine.

The meeting is scheduled to occur in the community room at West Carrollton High School, 5833 Student St.
