Talent City Council seeks new member

Talent City Council is seeking applicants for Position 4 following a resignation.

Councilor Derek Volkart resigned his position effective Sept. 30 because he moved outside the city. He was elected to the seat in November 2020.

City Council will interview candidates at its Nov. 17 meeting and appoint the new member. The appointee would serve until Jan. 1, 2023. The seat will be up for vote at the general election in November 2022.

While candidates must usually reside within the city limits, the City Council has adopted a temporary rule to allow Talent residents displaced by the Almeda fire to be eligible to serve on the council. The only requirements are that they are registered to vote in Talent and intend to reside in the city of Talent when circumstances permit.

Applications are due at Talent City Hall by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10. Applications can be found on the city website, www.cityoftalent.org, or are available at City Hall, 110 E. Main St.

For more information, call Community Engagement Director Hector Flores at 541-535-1566, ext. 1012, or email him at hflores@cityoftalent.org.
