Cave Spring to fill 2 posts for City Council, Downtown Development Authority
The Cave Spring City Council is taking letters of interest from residents interested in being appointed to an empty council seat.
City Clerk Judy Dickinson said she will be accepting letters of interest for the vacant Post 4 seat until Dec. 31 in her office in City Hall, 10 Georgia Ave.
To be eligible for the position, a person has to be 21 years old, a resident of Cave Spring for at least one year before the appointment and a registered voter, Dickinson stated.
Post 4 was vacated by Dennis Shoaf when he decided to run for mayor. He won the office in the November election and will take over the gavel in January.
Dickinson said she expects the council to start interviewing candidates around the first week of January. The council hopes to appoint someone during the Jan. 12 meeting, but may have to wait until the Feb. 9 meeting, she said.
The Cave Spring Downtown Development Authority is also taking applications to fill a position on the board that was vacated by Tom Lindsey, who was elected to the City Council.
Anyone interested in applying should go to the Cave Spring Welcome Center, 4 Rome St., Dickinson said. Sandra Lindsey, the executive director of the DDA, will be taking the applications, she added.
