TWIN FALLS, Idaho – The Twin Falls City Council has asked all candidates who submitted letters of interest to introduce themselves at the City Council meeting on Monday, Nov. 14.

The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. to allow candidates sufficient time to introduce themselves and answer questions from council.

Each candidate who met the deadline for submitting a letter of interest will be invited to share briefly their interest in the position, relevant qualifications, and other information that may be pertinent to the appointment. Residents of the City of Twin Falls are encouraged to attend.

Current Councilman Don Hall will resign his seat on the City Council when he is sworn in as Twin Falls County Commissioner in January 2017. The vacancy will be filled by appointment by the mayor with the consent of the council.

Applicants are required to be a qualified voter in the City of Twin Falls at the time of application to be eligible for consideration. The appointee will serve the balance of the term for Seat 6 on the council, which expires in January 2018, but may choose to run for election to the seat in the 2017 general election.

In early September, the City Council released a statement that encouraged interested individuals to attend Twin Falls City Council meetings to familiarize themselves with the budget, strategic planning, and comprehensive planning processes. And on September 24, the City Council asked candidates to submit a letter of interest by Friday, Nov. 4. The city received 14 letters of interest.
