Candidates with complete applications will be invited to a public meeting for interviews with City Council on February 6 at City Hall. If necessary, an additional round of interviews may be held.
The appointed candidate can seek election to the seat in November 2023 and, if successful, would serve the remainder of the term expiring November 2027.
