Town Of Carefree Seeks To Fill Council Vacancy

The Town of Carefree posted notice of a Town Council vacancy today:

On February 4, 2015, the Town Council accepted the letter of resignation for the Mayor David Schwan. His resignation created a vacant seat on the council. Persons interested in being appointed to fill this vacancy must be at least 18 years old, and a qualified elector (registered voter) residing within the Town boundaries for at least one year prior to the appointment by the Town Council.  Council members serve without compensation.  The term to be filled will expire in the year 2016.

Those interested should send a letter of interest to include a statement of qualifications and resume to:
Kandace French
Town Clerk
Town of Carefree
P.O. Box 740
Carefree, Arizona 85377
Deadline: 4:30 p.m. on February 25, 2015.

At the February 10 Council meeting, Vice Mayor Les Peterson and Council Member Melissa Price were nominated to replace Schwan as mayor. However, the Council did not reach a majority vote, therefore Vice Mayor Peterson will continue to act as mayor and the matter will be revisited at a later Council meeting.
