BRUNSWICK — The city of Brunswick has announced that it will be accepting applications for the vacant Council seat after Joe Salzgeber’s resignation Monday.
Salzgeber’s position on Council was being looked into after concerns were raised about potential conflicts between his position on Council and his new job as the county recorder.
A public hearing was held on Monday after several weeks of discussions and research. The purpose was to allow Law Director Kenneth Fisher to share his conclusion and for Salzgeber to share his research and comments on the situation.
However, in the end Salzgeber resigned from his seat.
On Wednesday, the city sent out a legal notice announcing that it is now accepting applications to fill the Ward 3 seat.
According to the notice, applicants must have resided in Ward 3 for at least two years immediately prior to the date of taking office and provide proof of residency.
The appointed candidate will fill the unexpired term until Dec. 31.
The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22.
A resume and cover letter are required.
