The Isanti City Council declared a vacancy at Tuesday’s meeting following the resignation of council member Dan Collison.
After serving 11 years on the council, Collison’s last day in office was Oct. 3. More than two years remain on his seat’s unexpired term.
Collison's departure from the council comes as he plans to move out of the city.
According to city administrator Josi Wood, the council can temporarily make an appointment before a successor is voted in at a November 2024 special election.
Candidate applications for the position must be received by the end of the day on Oct. 24.
Mayor Jimmy Gordon thanked Collison for his time on the council at a meeting on Sept. 19.
"I want you to know how much the city owes you a debt of gratitude for all the years you've put in, and the effort that you've made," Gordon said. "We've certainly been fortunate to have you on the council."
An appointment to Collison’s seat will tentatively be named on Nov. 8.
