The Fife City Council is accepting applications to fill a vacancy on the panel for an unexpired term.
The person appointed by the council will serve on the City Council until the November 2011 general election results are certified.
The opening was created when council member Don Alveshere announced his resignation May 10 because he is moving outside of the Fife city limits. Alveshere was elected to a four-year term that expires at the end of 2013.
To be appointed to the seven-member Fife City Council, one must have lived with the Fife city limits for a minimum of one year at the time of assuming office, be a registered voter and be at least 18 years old.
Applicants should be available for an interview by the council during its meeting June 28, starting at 7 p.m. in City Hall, 5411 23rd St. E. Interview times will be determined. The council will appoint a new member at its July 12 meeting, starting at 7 p.m.
Council members are required to attend numerous regularly scheduled and special meetings during evenings, weekends and weekdays. The minimum time required for council activities is 10 to 15 hours per week. The monthly salary for a council member is $526.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. June 21 at City Hall. They are available at www.cityoffife.org or by contacting Andrea Edwards, executive assistant, at 253-896-8602 or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
