CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council voted Tuesday night to fill two vacant council seats through the appointment process. The vote was 4 to 1 with Alex Brown voting no.

Brown argued that the projected $300,000 cost of a special election was necessary in order to give citizens the choice of who will represent them on the city council.

Chico residents who are registered to vote who would like to apply for a vacant seat can begin submitting applications Wednesday, with a deadline for submissions of July 15.

The city council will interview selected applicants on July 20, and then, in a special meeting scheduled for July 27, will make the two appointments.

The two seats were vacated by the resignation of Scott Huber on June 21, followed less than one week later by Kami Denlay’s resignation.

The successful applicants will complete Huber and Denlay’s terms in office which conclude at the end of 2022.
