Interim Prescott Council post generates 9 applications
PRESCOTT - With about a week to go before the application deadline, nine people have already expressed interest in temporarily filling the unexpired term of Prescott City Councilwoman Tammy Linn, who resigned this past week.
On June 13, Linn announced that 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.
During a June 14 discussion on how to fill the seat, the Prescott City Council agreed to advertise for people interested in serving temporarily. The interim appointment would run from July until November, when a special election would determine a permanent replacement.
City Clerk Elizabeth Burke reported Friday that the city has since received applications from: Alex Weber, John Stevens, Edmund Kahn, Robert Luzius, Stephen Silvernale, Len Scamardo, Anthony Vilardo, Bob Roecker, and Don A. Riley.
The deadline for submitting applications for the four-month council stint is July 1.
After that, city policy requires the council to conduct public interviews with the applicants before choosing a replacement.
