Council Vacancy Process Opens

Not to be too lost in the maneuverings over the mayoral vacancy is the fact that there is now a vacant seat on the council that must be filled.

This is an opportunity perhaps for an individual who might normally not want to go through the electoral process to have a chance to serve this community on the City Council.

There will be a City Information Session this coming Monday, January 10 at 7 pm at the Davis Senior Center on 646 A Street.

According to the city’s release, “The City will hold an information session about the appointment process and answer questions about the process, the requirements for applicants, etc. All interested individuals are encouraged to attend.”

Here are the key dates:

January 5- Application Period Opens
