|The end of City Council appointments?|
The Half Moon Bay City Council is working on rules for the appointment and ultimate election of new members in the event one of its own calls it quits. Currently the council can appoint a member to fill the entirety of the unexpired term or set an election for the position. But the council is now working to combine the two with a policy allowing a short appointment until a special election can be set.
Does that seem like a good idea to you?
