Anyone interested in applying for the seat must be:
■ 18 years old or older.

The at-large position was vacated by former councilor Rick Brainard, who resigned last month. The term is up April 2015, at which time the seat will be filled by an election. Current councilors will appoint the new member.

The City Council expects to choose a candidate during a Sept. 5 meeting.
