Newly elected county councilors Vincent Chiravalle, Sharon Stover and Mike Wismer joined Nona Bowman, Robert Gibson and Michael Wheeler for the first meeting of the new council on Tuesday night.
During that meeting, the councilors discussed the procedure that they would follow in order to fill the vacancy left by Jim West.
It was decided that the council would seek citizens’ input and accept letters of interest from the general public, instead of appointing someone to fill the vacancy.
Council has asked that those who are interested in seeking a seat on council submit their letters to Administrator Max Baker by Jan. 20. Councilors will discuss the process and may reach a decision as soon as Jan. 27.
Just about anyone who has served on the county council will tell you that it’s not an easy job. Not only are the councilors tasked with doing what is right for the county and the citizens, but they must also be open-minded and willing to listen to what the citizens have to say.
Council Chairman Michael Wheeler and councilors Nona Bowman and Sharon Stover recently shared some insight on what they expect of the person who fills West’s vacancy.
