SUMMARY STATEMENT:

On June 28th the City Clerk received the attached letter of resignation from Council Member Moore.

As required under Title 2 of the Valdez Charter (attached), I am submitting Council Member Moore’s letter of resignation to the City Council for acceptance.

Following acceptance of the resignation, the City Council is required to fill the vacancy within 30 days. The Charter does not require the city council to follow a specific procedure when selecting a person to fill the vacancy. However, a person appointed to fill an elective office must be a registered voter and shall have been a resident of the City for a period of not less than one year preceding appointment.

The appointment shall be for a term ending at the next regular council meeting following the next regular city election.

Upon direction by the Mayor and Council, the City Clerk will assist in the process to fill the vacancy.
