Canandaigua City Council has extended the deadline for applications to fill a recent council vacancy.
Originally set for Aug. 18, the new cut-off is now Wednesday. This comes in the wake of the Aug. 14 resignation of Councilor Renée Sutton.
After screening the applicants on Aug. 29, the City Council will appoint the chosen candidate who must have been a city resident for at least the past year. This appointee will serve until Dec. 31, 2024. However, the final year of Sutton’s term will be decided by a special election in November 2024.
Those wishing to apply should forward a cover letter and résumé to City Manager John Goodwin. Sutton, in her second term, first joined the Council in 2017 representing Ward 4 before transitioning to an at-large role.
