City Council seat, anyone?

Michelle Enger |

An at-large position on the Eau Claire City Council is now available – without the process of running for election. Dana Wachs vacated the position earlier this month and applications for the position will be available soon. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and a resident of Eau Claire.

Openings for an at-large position can draw more candidates from the city because of the lack of campaigning.   The candidates will have to fill out an application and write an essay about why they want the job. Candidates will also have an opportunity to give a five minute speech to the council before they make a decision.

The city council meet this week (Tuesday) to discuss an application deadline for the vacant position.
