Rock Falls City Council Back Up to Full Strength
0 0

For months, the Rock Falls City Council has been operating shorthanded as the Fourth Ward seat remained empty.

Much to the surprise of Mayor William Wescott, it seemed that no one from the Fourth Ward seemed interested to taking the seat on the council.

The long time of having an open spot on the council has finally come to an end.

At the Tuesday night council meeting, Mayor Wescott nominated and the council accepted the offer to fill the remaining term for the Fourth Ward by Violet Sobottka.

Mayor Wescott said he met with Sobottka and he felt she would make an excellent addition to the council.

Sobottka will complete the two years remaining on the term and they she will decide if she wants to run for another two year term.

Wescott said it makes everything easier when there is a full council.

In 2021 will be the election for the Fourth Ward for a four year term. Alderman Fulsom’s seat as the other Fourth Ward Alderman will come available during the 2019 election.
