City Council selected Christopher Wiegenstein to fill the vacant Position 4 seat vacated by Councilmember Evans in April.

The City received applications from nine interested applicants by the May 8, 2023 deadline. One of which withdrew before consideration. During the May 16, 2023 - Regular City Council Meeting the Council created a shortlist of applicants to interview.

At last night’s City Council Workshop, they interviewed applicants. Council went into Executive Session to review the qualifications of the applicants and came out of Executive Session to select the specific individual to serve the short-term seat for Position 4 through certification of the general election on November 28.  

Mayor Severns stated, “Congratulations to Councilmember Wiegensten! I am looking forward to working with him and seeing him on the dais at the June 6 Regular City Council Meeting.”
