HORICON — There’s been something missing at the Horicon City Council meetings since October that at times has almost a lack of quorum and left a section of the city without proper representation. At Tuesday night’s meeting Keith Pahl stepped up to represent the city’s second district.
“For one month,” Pahl said.
Once he’s appointed, he’ll have to be elected as a write-in candidate for the district in the April election.
“It’s easily a month and a half,” joked Mayor Steve Neitzel.
Pahl is stepping into a position vacated by Jack Flouro in Oct. 2012. Over the last few months, no one had applied to be appointed. Unfortunately Pahl applied to be appointed past the deadline to be on the April ballot.
“At least on Election Day we can let people know that somebody is interested in the position and at that point if he’s elected he’ll be here for two years,” said city clerk/treasurer Kristen Jacobson.
