The Newport City Council is seeking applications from residents interested in filling two vacancies on the Newport City Council. The vacancies were created by the resignation of former City Councilor Laura Swanson, and by City Councilor Dean Sawyer assuming the Mayor position at the January 7, 2019 Council meeting. The remainder of both vacant terms is two years, expiring on January 4, 2021.
Applicants must be qualified voters and have resided within the city limits for at least one year immediately prior to appointment. The application deadline is December 28, 2018, by 5:00 P.M. Applications received after that date and time will not be considered.
The current and newly elected City Councilors will conduct interviews of the applicants at the City Council work session, at noon, on January 7, 2019, in Conference Room A, of the Newport City Hall.
Appointments to fill the two vacancies will be made at the January 7, 2019 City Council organizational meeting, beginning at 6:00 P.M. All meetings will be held at City Hall.
Applications should be made by utilizing the committee application form found on the city website at www.newportoregon.gov. Click on “City Government,” located under the photo of the bridge; then click on “Committee Application,” and submit the application electronically.
