Council seat already drawing interest


Electric City will fill its vacated council position April 11, City Clerk Jackie Perman said last week.

Perman stated that the city will advertise the vacancy March 22 and 29, and turn the names over to the council for its selection.

Brad Parrish submitted his resignation last month because his wife, Diana, had been hired for the city’s deputy clerk position. At the time, Parrish stated that because of his wife’s status with the city he wanted to avoid any “conflict of interest.”

The current deputy clerk, Russell Powers, will replace Jackie Perman as city clerk when she retires March 31.

Perman said that the city has already received three letters of interest for the council position and the city hasn’t even advertised for interested parties to submit letters of interest. Perman declined to identify interested parties until others have the opportunity to apply.

Perman said the council will hold its spring retreat April 15. She stated the city wanted to wait until the new council person was seated.
