Needles, California: If anybody in the community wants to apply to fill the vacant seat as a member of the Needles City Council, the last day to apply is by 4:00 p.m. PT on Tuesday, January 7th, 2020.
With the recent resignation of Needles City Council Member Clayton Hazlewood, a seat on the Needles City Council has become vacant and is needing to be filled before the next regular meeting.
In December 2019, ZachNews spoke with Needles City Manager Rick Daniels regarding the process for choosing who to fill the vacant seat and who those in the community who are registered voters can participate in becoming a member of the Needles City Council.
Those who are applying will get a full agenda package to study in case you are chosen to serve.
Interviews and appointment to the remainder of Hazlewood’s term is to occur during the regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 14th, 2020.
The appointed candidate is to be seated immediately, have the able to vote on agenda items and will serve until December 2020.
You can come into the City of Needles Administration Office at 817 Third Street near F Street in Downtown Needles, California between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT and speak to Needles City Clerk Dale Jones or give the Needles City Clerk of call at: 1 (760) 326-2113 and Press #2.
Good luck to all of the people who applied.
