4-24-14 fdl council will accept applications to fill vacancy
The Fond du Lac city council will accept applications before making an appointment to fill a council vacancy. The council discussed the matter at their meeting Wednesday night. Dan Manning resigned last month because of a new job. There is still a year left in his term. Applications will be accepted through May 2nd. The council will review the applicants, and bring back a select number of candidates for interviews on May 12th. The council will make a selection at their May 14th meeting and the new councilmember will be sworn into office at the May 28th council meeting. Manning was part of a layoff two months ago of a dozen salaried employees at Giddings and Lewis where he worked as a manufacturing engineer. Manning was the first openly gay member on council. Councilmembers Miller and Block wanted the council to appoint Mick Burroughs to fill the vacancy after he finished fifth in the voting in the recent spring election.
