The Soldotna City Council is set to meet tonight, to approve the results of the April 2nd special mayoral election. As we previously reported, Nels Anderson gained 60.8% of the 594 ballots cast. Mayor-elect Anderson outlined his views of the role of Mayor in the city of Soldotna.
Mayor-Elect Anderson: “The mayor doesn’t have a vote, the city council has a vote. The mayor basically sets tone and direction of the city. He certainly can influence the city council in the direction he wants to go. He represents the city has its face in public images and opportunities. But, basically as I said, I think he can set the direction and tone by virtue of his attitudes and directions he wants to go.”
Tonight, the council will also take up a resolution to change the council meeting time from 6:30pm to 6:00pm.
The meeting will begin tonight at 6:30pm at the Soldotna City Council Chambers on Birch St.
