Council may appoint new member Friday morning

The Midway City Council may appoint a member to fill a vacancy at its special meeting at 8:30 a.m. Friday in the upstairs community room at City Hall, according to the official meeting notice sent to the five council members this afternoon.

When the council scheduled the session, during its last regular meeting, Mayor Tom Bozarth said it would be to discuss the vacancy. Today's notice that Bozarth had called the meeting says "Possible action will be taken" and includes on the agenda "Executive Session," citing the state law that allows a meeting to be closed for discussions "which might lead to the appointment, discipline, or dismissal" of a member. The law prohibits taking action in closed session.

Several Midway residents, including some candidates in the November council election, have applied for the vacancy created by the resignation of Becky Moore. The Midway Messenger has requested copies of the applications.
