Interest still lacking in council appointment

Don’t everyone jump up at once.

Bainbridge Island City Hall has yet to see a single application come in from anyone interested in an appointment to the city council to fill the seat vacated by the resignation of Matthew Tirman.

Tirman officially stepped down from the council Feb. 28.

Residents interested in applying for the South Ward, Position 3 seat must have lived on Bainbridge for at least one year as of March 17, and be a resident of the South Ward.

City spokeswoman Kristen Drew said Tuesday that no applications for the seat had yet arrived at city hall.

Less than two weeks remain before the deadline hits for applications.

Interested South Ward residents have until 4 p.m. Friday, April 17 to submit an application.

The seat is subject to a confirmation vote from the city council, and the new council member will serve until the results of the November 2021 General Election are certified.
