Two did not meet the length of residency requirement. A list of the applicants will be put out to Council. Each Council member will choose six names and send to the Clerk of Council to tally. Any applicant whose name was mentioned three or more times will be interviewed. A Special Meeting will be added to April 12 before the regularly scheduled Workshop to appoint a new Mayor before the April 14 deadline.
