Oregon City seeks applicants for vacated seat on City Commission
New commissioner expected to be appointed on June 3 -
Oregon City Commission Position No. 4 is currently vacant and commissioners are accepting applications for appointment until 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 21.
Oregon City Commissioner Daphne Wuest resigned effective Thursday, April 16, citing growing demands of a recently purchased business in Central Oregon as cause for the decision.
According to Oregon City Charter, Wuests seat will be filled by appointment. Oregon Citys four remaining commissioners will interview applicants to the position on June 2 and are expected to appoint the new city commissioner on June 3. This appointment will be in effect until Dec. 31, 2016, unless the appointee is re-elected in November 2016 for the remaining two years of Wuests unfinished term.
To qualify for City Commission, an applicant must be a registered voter in Oregon City and reside within city limits for 12 months prior to the appointment.
