The Philomath City Council is accepting applications to fill a vacant position on the Planning Commission.
At its Nov. 13 meeting, the council accepted the resignation of Caleb Nelson. In his letter of resignation, Nelson acknowledged that he no longer meets the residency requirement to remain a member of the Planning Commission due to moving outside of the city limits.
The council will accept applications from citizens interested in serving the remainder of Nelson’s term, which expires Dec. 31, 2020.
The application deadline is Dec. 1, 2017, at 5 p.m.
Citizens interested in the position should contact City Recorder Ruth Post at City Hall, 980 Applegate St., Philomath, or by calling 541-929-6148 for more information or to receive an application form.
The council will interview applicants and make a selection at its Dec. 11 meeting.
