Jennie Hannah Chosen to Complete Council Table

     March 22, 2016: At the special council meeting Monday, 21, longtime business woman Jennie Hannah, owner of the popular Cruiser Cafe, was chosen to fill the seat vacated by Andy Powell December 23, 2015. She says her hobbies are reading, crocheting, quading and shooting. Hannah should be sworn in at the next regular council meeting, Monday, March 28.
     Hannah was recently appointed to the town's Civil Service Board which has an opening now since she has been elected by the council for Powell's vacated seat.
 



Special Council Meeting Monday, March 21- 6:15 p.m.

     March 16, 2016: The council will meet in the Community Center to make a decision regarding the citizens that have applied for the council seat vacated by Andy Powell who resigned because he moved out of the town limits.
    At this point the vacancy must be filled immediately or the county council would be tasked with choosing a council member. The first deadline for filling this position was February 10 but had to be moved to March 11.
    Councilmember Abby Gribi, on the Public Safety Committee, stated on February 22 that, “One application wasn't filled out in its entirety, and one very basically, so we decided to put that [the notice] back out.”
    The three candidates who have offered to fill the council seat are:
Jennifer Hannah, owner of Cruiser Cafe and recently appointed to the Civil Service Board; Brad McBain, a veteran and Brenden Pierce, who was twice elected to the council, serving eight years, but did not run in the 2015 election.
    The person chosen by council will serve until the next election for Powell's position which began in January 2014.
    Special council meetings can only act on the business stated on the agenda. No other business can be conducted.
