The process is set for selecting a new city commissioner in St. Joseph to replace Peggy Getty when she steps down this year. City Manager John Hodgson says anyone who wants to be considered should get their application ready.
“The deadline to apply will be 5 p.m. Thursday, February 4th,” says Hodgson. “The reason for that is we will have the applications together to put before the city commission on February 8th so they can make decisions on the next step.”
The exact next step will be decided at the January 25 meeting in terms of how many commissioners will do interviews. Getty is stepping down as her husband’s law firm is transferring him to South Bend and their house will be up for sale.
