Search for city council replacement expected to take two months

The Lynnwood City Council will soon begin its search to replace Kimberly Cole, who was removed from her seat last week due to absenteeism.

The council will start discussing the matter at the regular business meeting on Monday, Oct. 8.

Although a specific timeline is unknown, Council President Loren Simmonds estimates the process will take six to eight weeks.

“Please be mindful that four of the remaining council members have not been through this process before. It may be a little slower than usual,” Simmonds told us.

The council will soon be accepting applications from interested candidates. The top candidates will be interviewed before the full council, which will then appoint the replacement. The term expires December 2013.
