Deadline to apply for Marysville City Council vacancy is November 28
The Marysville City Council has a vacancy to fill and residents interested in applying have just under two weeks to get their Letters of Interest.
Mayor Kathy Hayman leaves the seat open after winning her new post in last week’s election against former civil servant Wayne Pyden.
Whoever fills their old council seat will serve the remaining two years, as council seats are usually four-year terms.
Under the city charter, council members have 60 days to appoint a new member.
This week, Hayman said interested applicants have until late Monday, Nov. 28 to deliver letters of interest to City Clerk Rene Stoia at City Hall, 1255 Delaware Ave., or [email protected] com.
The city council, which usually meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month, meets on the first and third Mondays of December due to holidays, and a new council member will be selected on December 5.
“There are at least two meetings a month. We’re looking for someone who has the best interests of the city and its people,” Hayman said.
“Someone with business experience or who can be varied,” she said of common qualifications. “Everyone brings their unique talents. … I would like to see a female. I think (there is a lack of women) representation at all levels. But we can’t wait to see the candidates (and) who will present themselves.
