Fouse fills open Lapel seat


LAPEL — The spot on Lapel Town Council left vacant by the recent departure of former president Noah Bozell has been filled.
At a Republican Party caucus conducted on Nov. 16, Roger Fouse — who has tried a couple of times before to win a spot on the council — secured a seat on the body.
He was elected over another candidate, Blane Trinkle, and attended his first town meeting as a member of the council that same night.
Fouse lost a bid for a seat in the May Primary Election to Chad Blake, Brian Robertson, and Gary Shuck. Last October he was defeated by Robertson in another caucus after the departure of Teresa Retherford.
Fouse, who moved to Lapel in 2012, currently serves on the Lapel Park Board and works for the Noblesville Parks Department. He was previously a member of the Lapel Stony Creek Fire Territory as a volunteer fireman/EMT for five years, and has over 20 years of experience in the field.
Bozell, who joined the council in 2021, resigned from his spot on the board a month ago, citing focusing on his family and his family’s business as reasons for stepping down. He was the council’s president when he resigned.
