Candidates sought for council vacancy
(Nov 12, 2013)
Westminster City Council is seeking applicants to fill a recent vacancy on council.
When Herb Atchison was sworn in to office as mayor on Nov. 11, the office he held as city councillor was vacated.
According to the City Charter and the Municipal Code, any vacancy must be filled within 30 days by a majority vote of the remaining members of City Council.
The person chosen to fill the vacancy will fill the balance of Atchison’s unexpired term, which will expire Nov. 2015.
The City Council is accepting applications to fill that vacancy.
The deadline to apply is 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21.
An application with instructions is available here.
