ARCADIA, Wis. (WEAU)-- Arcadia Mayor, John Kimmel, has until Thursday to decide if he wants a recount in last week's recall election.

Last week Arcadia City Clerk, Angela Berg told WEAU Kimmel had three business days after the election to make the request. That deadline would have been Monday.

Berg now says Kimmel has until Thursday evening, because the office just finished counting absentee ballots Monday morning.

Last Tuesday, Rob Reichwein defeated Kimmel in the special election, receiving 69-percent of the vote.
