Moraine is accepting applicants to fill the city council seat formerly held by Jim McGuire.
Applicants have until noon Thursday to file paperwork for the at-large council seat McGuire held for nearly a decade until his March 26 death at age 72.
Applicants must be residents of Moraine for a minimum of three years and a qualified elector of the city under its charter guidelines.
Moraine City Council has 30 days to fill the vacancy, according to the city’s charter. Regardless of whether appoints a successor or not, according to the city, a special election will be held in November to fill the unexpired term, which was on the ballot in 2017.
McGuire, a three-term councilman, was elected to an at-large council seat in 2009, according to the elections board. He ran unopposed in re-election bids in 2013 and last year.
