The City of Spokane Valley is once again accepting applications for City Council, this time for Bob McCaslin's seat. McCaslin died last month. The seat is open to any adult who is a registered voter and has lived in Spokane Valley for at least a year. Applications are available at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague, or online at www.spokanevalley.org. Applications must be hand delivered or mailed.
The application deadline is 4 p.m. on April 19. If someone who filed for the other vacant council seat wants to be considered for this seat they do not have to fill out the paperwork again, just send a letter to the city clerk announcing their desire to be considered for this seat as well.
The council is scheduled to select which candidates to interview at the April 26 council meeting. The interviews will take place on May 10, with the final vote on who to appoint set for May 17. Whomever is picked to fill the seat must run for re-election in November to keep the position.
