Letter: Public process urged to fill council opening
To the editor,
As a proud resident of Hastings and member of the Hastings Planning Commission, I would like to encourage the Hastings City Council to take public applications for the open council seat being vacated by Council Member Mike Slavik.
While I understand Mayor Hicks has nominated a former council member, Ed Riveness, to fill the seat for two years without allowing the public to apply, I believe this action sends the wrong message to the citizens of Hastings.
