Cave Spring to fill 2 posts for City Coun­cil, Down­town De­vel­op­ment Author­ity

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From Staff Re­ports

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.
