Council members may choose to interview applicants between now and the first meeting in January - or not.
DECISIONS TO BE MADE ON JANUARY 4TH
The City Council will choose a replacement for Foley at their first meeting in January, on the 4th. They will also choose a replacement for Jim Righeimer on the Planning Commission and may choose others as well, depending on who is chosen to replace Foley. Same with the Parks and Recreation Commission. By the end of the night on the 4th we should have an idea of just who is going to be guiding our city for the next couple years.
