The vacancy on the Hancock Council is expected to be addressed at a March meeting. As of last week, the city had one application submitted fully, with several other residents expressing a preliminary interest. All paperwork must be received by the end of the business day on Friday at City Hall on Quincy Street.
You can find the form here. The opening came about when member Will Lytle stepped down to take a job in Idaho. He recently wrapped up coursework at Michigan Tech, receiving a doctorate degree.
The council will hear from those interested in the opening, and nominate the candidates it feels are best suited for consideration. The six remaining members will then vote on the nominees individually until someone has secured a winning margin. The new councilor will serve until November, and would have to win a seat via the general election held at that time to enjoy a complete term.
