Now that Tom Friedel is the new city administrator he'll have to vacate his seat on the City Council. Who will take over? And how?
The council, which is responsible for addressing the vacancy, has three choices for the 10th District seat:
1.) It can appoint an interim replacement.
2.) It can call a special election.
3.) It can leave the seat vacant until the election next spring.
There's no timetable we know of to replace Friedel.
The 10th District is roughly bounded by 21st Street on the North, the Union Pacific Railroad Line on the East, Taylor Avenue and the Old North Shore Bike Trail on the West, and the city limits on the south.
