Draper City Councilmember Troy Walker was elected on November 5, 2013, to be Draper City’s next mayor. When Councilmember Walker is sworn in as mayor on January 6, 2014, he will resign his position as a city councilmember, thereby creating a vacancy on the city council.
To fill this vacancy for the unexpired portion of Councilmember Walker’s term, which expires January 5, 2016, the City Council will need to appoint an individual in accordance with Utah Code 20A-1-510. It is anticipated that the appointment process will take place in January 2014. At that time, individuals interested in being appointed to fill the vacancy must submit their name for consideration to the City Recorder, and then each of these individuals will be interviewed by the City Council in an open meeting regarding the person’s qualifications. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the City Recorder, Rachelle Conner, at 801-576-6502.
