Ind. Gov't. - "Spring Grove Town Board Member Claims Colleagues' Seats Have Been Vacated" [Updated]

Kicks96 Richmond has the brief item, reported by Jeff Lane. A sample:

Board member Ben Lukacek claims that the town’s other four board members failed to file their oaths of office and, according to Indiana law, it vacates their seats on the board. This week, according to Lukacek, the board held a vote to decide if they had violated any law. They found themselves not guilty.
[Updated 5/13/16] A story today from Kick96 reports:
Attorney Andrew Sickmann said in a written statement that the board members were all holdovers, so no oaths of office were necessary. Sickmann added that the issue was reviewed by the clerk of courts of Wayne County.
