Enough signatures were gathered by petition to recall the Mayor of Broken Bow, Jon Berghorst.

According to information from John Walters, who filed for the petitions, 413 verified signatures were collected. Four hundred and five signatures were required. Walters provided a copy of a letter from the Custer County Clerk's office dated Nov. 1, 2019.

The next step in the process is for the Broken Bow City Council to set the date of the recall election. The election must be scheduled between 50 and 80 days after the Council is notified of the sufficient signatures.
