Hicks to nominate Ed Riveness to finish Slavik's council term
In January, a new face will be joining the Hastings City Council. Councilmember Mike Slavik is resigning his seat as of Dec. 31 in order to take the vacancy on the Dakota County Board of Commissioners left by District 1 commissioner Joe Harris.
The city charter gives the council the ability to appoint a new council member to fill the seat until the end of the term. At its next meeting, the council will declare the vacancy.
