Field and Sharp sought a reversal at a state appeals court but were denied. The next step is the state Supreme Court, and the appropriate documents have been filed, according to an attorney for the village.

An attorney for Field and Sharp couldn't be reached for comment.

Amrich is set to take office Thursday. He soundly defeated incumbent Debbie Herrmann in the April 9 election.
