City Council: Process to fill the open seat

The City of Shorewood accepted letters of interest from residents to fill the remaining term of a council position vacated when Jennifer Labadie was elected as mayor.  The term will expire on December 31, 2022.  

Letters were accepted through noon, February 1, 2021. The city council will review letters that were received and may appoint any individual who is eligible for election to the office of the city council.  Generally, to be eligible a person must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of the city, and at least 21 years old, and eligible to vote. 

The city council meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month. Meetings are at 7 p.m. with tentative work sessions scheduled between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. depending on needed time. Each council member also serves as a liaison to different commissions or boards as determined by the council.
