If you want to fill the vacancy on the Milton City Council left open by former council member Heather Hathaway, you have until Oct. 13 to throw your hat in the ring.
The Milton City Council is now accepting applications from those who live in Ward 1 to fill the seat for the rest of Hathaway’s term, which expires in December 2022.
Hathaway unexpectedly resigned Sept. 8, saying she had sold her house in Ward 1 and no longer lived in the appropriate city district.
Completed applications and a current resume must be submitted to the City Clerk by 4 p.m. Oct. 13. Late submissions will not be accepted, according to a press release from the city. The clerk will review all applications to determine eligibility.
Applicants will be given an opportunity to present their qualifications at the Oct.22 Committee of the Whole meeting. The council will make a formal appointment Oct. 27.
Applications are available on the city’s website, miltonfl.org.
