Council Seat Could Be Filled by Appointment

Current Kenai Mayor Pat Porter is running for her fourth term this October 1, but challenger Bob Molloy could change the face of the Kenai City Council if he won. Kenai City Clerk Sandra Modigh explains…


Modigh: “If council member Molloy was elected to the Mayoral seat, his seat would be considered a vacancy on the City Council, and pursuant to our municipal code, the remaining council members by majority vote would be able to appoint an individual to that remaining term.”


The appointee would then serve until the next election in 2014. However, Modigh said council appointments in Kenai are unique…


Modigh: “We don’t currently have that procedure outlined in code or charter, so ti would be up to Council to determine how they would like to proceed in filling the vacancy.”
