Three seek city council seat


Electric City will soon fill its vacancy on the city council.

Three residents of the city filed letters of interest to fill the vacancy after Brad Parrish resigned a couple of months ago.

City Clerk Russell Powers said that the three — Jeremy Miller, Ken Anderson and Lisa Lyngar — will be considered by the council when it meets April 11.

“I don’t know if the council will move on the appointment,” he said Monday. “It may want to take some time before they name a replacement.”

The council plans a retreat April 15, in Ephrata, and might want to discuss it at length then; at least that is one of the options the council has.

The city had advertised the vacant council position for two weeks, and it only received response from one person, Lisa Lyngar. The other two, Jeremy Miller and Ken Anderson, had submitted letters of interest before the advertisements ran.

One of the three will be selected to replace Parrish, who resigned when his wife, Diana, accepted the city position of Deputy City Clerk.

In submitting his resignation, Parrish said he was doing so to avoid any sense of conflict of interest since his wife was hired by the city.

Parrish was the main force behind the city’s current Pathway and Revitalization project. He also was the council’s representative to the Grant County Transit Authority.
