The City of Elk Grove announced today that they will be accepting applications for the 4th district city council seat that was vacated by the election of Steve Ly to the office of mayor. On Wednesday the council voted to fill the position by appointment rather than calling a special election. District 4 applicants must reside in District 4, be at least 18-years-old, a United States citizen, and registered to vote. The appointment term is for the remainder term of the vacated seat, which concludes December 12, 2018. Completed applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 18, 2017
The appointment will be considered at the regular City Council meeting of Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 8400 Laguna Palms Way in Elk Grove. Applicants will have an opportunity to present their qualifications to the Elk Grove City Council and the public. The City Council may appoint the new District 4 Council member at this meeting. The City is also seeking applications for other City committees, including the Historic Preservation Committee, Multicultural Committee, and the Planning Commission.
