Franklin City Council is accepting letters of interest for an at-large seat on council.
The seat was held by Michael Dulaney, who resigned the post to accept an elected position as Venango County commissioner.
The seat will be vacant as of Jan. 1, and under the city’s Home Rule Charter, council has 45 days to fill the post.
Letters of interest will be accepted at the Franklin city manager’s office at 430 Thirteenth St., Franklin, 16323, until 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 30.
City council may wish to interview applicants, possibly at the January council meeting, and hopes to arrive at a decision by the Feb. 4 council meeting, when the new member could be sworn in.
The appointee will join Mayor Douglas A. Baker and council members Donna Fletcher, James Johnson, Sam Lyons, Fred Mays and Ryan Rudegeair on the panel.
