4.12.010 Filling City Council vacancies.

If a vacancy occurs in the office of Mayor or City Councilmember, the City Council may, by majority vote, either fill the vacancy by appointment or call a special election to fill the vacancy. The special election shall be held on the next regularly established election date not less than 114 days from the call of the special elections. A person appointed or elected to fill a vacancy shall hold office only for the unexpired term of the former incumbent. If the City Council does not fill the vacancy by appointment and does not call a special election to fill such vacancy, then the vacancy shall be filled at the next election called by the City Council, whether such election is special or regular election.
