Submitted By Nadine Nader
The Fremont City Council announced its plan to appoint one person to fill the City Council seat made vacant when Bill Harrison was elected to serve as Mayor for the City of Fremont. The person appointed will serve for approximately two years, until the results of the Nov. 4, 2014, General Municipal Election are certified.
Those interested in being considered for the appointment to serve on the Fremont City Council are invited to complete a City Council Vacancy Application and Supplemental Questionnaire.

Completed applications and questionnaires must be returned to the Office of the City Clerk or submitted electronically to the firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, at 12 p.m.
Once the application period has closed, applications and questionnaire responses will be distributed to the City Council for review and discussion.
A tentative schedule for the process is as follows:
