There were eight people who put in applications. The candidates were: Cindy Chace, Gary Charles, Kenda Colman, Kay Embree, Sandy Levengood, Toby Smith, Trevor Strauch and Lucia Villerreal.
The council went into executive session at 7:02 p.m. and had a decision at 7:08 p.m. Strauch was appointed to fill the seat unanimously by the council. At 7:10 p.m. the special town council meeting concluded.
