The Council will review the letters at the July 17 Committee of Whole meeting. Applicants are encouraged to attend the meeting and participate in the discussion. The Committee of the Whole Meets in the Council Chambers of City Hall after the 6:30 p.m. Common Council.
The remaining term of the seat expires in April of 2019. Those hoping to serve longer will need run for election the old-fashion way by submitting nomination papers before the deadline in the first week of January.
