Scottville seeks new First Ward commissioner

January 13, 2019

SCOTTVILLE — A new representative for Scottville’s First Ward is being sought by city officials following the resignation of former commissioner Leon Begue, who officially left the city commission on Monday, Jan. 7.

Begue’s formal resignation and its approval by the commission came after a four-month medical absence, which he requested in late-August 2018.

The partial term will run from the date of appointment through Nov. 2, 2020 — the end of Begue’s term — at which time the person holding the seat will be able to run to maintain the seat in the election, if the appointee so chooses.

“We were hoping for either a phone call or a letter of interest,” Williams said. “They need to submit a letter in order to apply, but they can also call.”

In order to be eligible to serve on the commission, applicants are required to be residents of the First Ward, which is defined as anything west of Main Street to the western end of the city limits.
