This leaves Bunting’s council seat open.

Anyone wanting to be appointed to the City Council for the remainder of Bunting’s term (expiring Dec. 31, 2012) was asked to submit a letter of interest to the city by the end of Thursday, July 5.

Those who did that include Don Hall, Mike Iwanok, Darren Jakel, Jim Kelley, Gregg Peppin, Christopher Reilly and Jim Sarkilahti.

The council will consider all letters of interest and appoint the new council member at its July 10 meeting.
