MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) The remainder of retiring Alderman Russ Stauber’s term will be filled by an appointment process rather than by a special election.
That’s according to City Administrator Steve Barg who says the Common Council decided to use the appointment option since it’s too late to get on the ballot for the April election. That means a special election couldn’t be held until November 4th.
All residents of Marshfield’s 6th Aldermanic District interested in filling that vacancy have two weeks to submit a letter of interest to the city, and then appear before the Council for questioning. A final appointment by the Council is expected at their meeting on April 8th.
Full information on the process will be posted at the City of Marshfield website by early next week.
