On Tuesday Jan. 5, Johanna McCarthy was sworn in as the new Wayzata mayor, Cathy Iverson and Alex Plechash were sworn in as city councilmembers.

On that night, the city council determined the process for filing in the city council seat vacated by McCarthy.

The council decided with an “expedited process”.

This plan includes the city advertising and encouraging qualified citizens to apply for the open council seat.

Applications are due on Thursday, Jan. 14 at 4:30 p.m.

The council will then interview those people who applied on Thursday, Jan. 19 at a city council workshop.

Following the workshop, the council will appoint the new councilmember at the regular city council meeting.
