The St. Joseph City Council appointed Anne Buckvold to the council’s vacant seat at a special meeting May 17.
Buckvold was one of eight people who applied for the vacancy created when Matt Killam resigned at the end end of April. Buckvold was elected on a 4-0 vote.
Plans call for Buckvold to be sworn in at the council’s June 4 meeting. She will file out the rest of Killam’s term and the seat will be up for election in November.
The other applicants were Dennis Dunphy, James Eiynck, Brian Theisen, Robert Ringstrom, Aaron Lindblad, Jon Bruns and Amber Wiese.
The vote was taken after each of the eight applicants interviewed for 10 minutes with each council member. Then each council member listed their top three candidates. After a short discussion, the council voted.
