Five Apply for Ward II Seat

Five people have now applied for the open Ward II council seat caused by the resignation of David Morris.

These five will be interviewed on July 9th as per this from the city's web site:

Mayor Jeff Meyers has called a Special Meeting of the Governing Body for July 9, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 11110 Johnson Drive to interview candidates and appoint someone to the Ward II Council vacancy.

The five are:
