17 apply for temporary seat on Prescott City Council
PRESCOTT - Seventeen people have expressed interest in temporarily filling the unexpired term of Prescott City Councilwoman Tammy Linn.
On June 13, Linn announced she would be resigning from the council on July 14 to move with her family to Fargo, N.D., where her husband has accepted a job.
The deadline for submitting applications for the four-month council stint was July 1.
The interim appointment would run from July until November, when a special election would determine a permanent replacement.
City Clerk Elizabeth Burke said the city received applications from Alex Weber, John Stevens, Edmund Kahn, Robert Luzius, Stephen Silvernale, Len Scamardo, Anthony Vilardo, Bob Roecker, Don A. Riley, Dr. Dwight L. Jaeger, Daniel Gilliam, Frank Scott, Robert (Bob) Cihan, Anne-Marie Tayler, Robert (Bob) Bockrath, Lucy Mason and Roger Swenson.
During its July 5 meeting, the City Council will discuss how it wants to conduct the public interviews for the temporary council seat.
Burke said no one has requested a packet to run for the remaining two years of Linn's term. To appear on the November General Election ballot, election packets are due to the city clerk's office by 5 p.m. Aug. 10.
