St. Joseph City Council member Anne Buckvold announced her resignation following the Jan. 19 meeting.
The resignation will be effective the week of Jan. 25 following two committee work sessions.
Buckvold was appointed to the council in May 2018. She filled the seat of another council member who resigned that April because he was moving. She was then elected to the council in November 2018.
Mayor Rick Schultz said the council plans to follow the same appointment process from three previous resignations. Interested parties may submit an application and resume. They then will be invited to be interviewed by the council during a city council meeting. Finally, the council will make an appointment to the open seat.
The appointment will be for the remaining two years of a four-year council term.
At the time this issue of the Newsleader went to press, the city council had not yet met to outline the dates for applications, interviews and appointment. These will be posted on our website and Facebook page as soon as they are available.
