Colfax searches for councilmember


November 11, 2021

COLFAX - Colfax is seeking a new councilmember to fill the empty seat of Ben Miller.

"Due to growing personal and military obligations I am not able to give the position the attention it deserves," wrote Miller in a resignation letter on Oct. 24.

Miller was serving in Position 5.

The city council moved forward with steps to search for someone to fill the position.

"We advertise," said City Administrator Chris Mathis. "We get letters of interest."

Any adult American citizen living in the city limits of Colfax can submit a letter of interest to be appointed a councilmember to finish the two years of Miller's four-year term.

"People come in and introduce themselves (to the council) and the council votes on the candidates to determine a replacement," said Mathis.

The candidate appointed serves until the term ends and then decides on whether to run for re-election.

Letters of interest can be delivered to City Clerk Lynda Kramlich at city hall at 400 N. Mill Street, Colfax. The deadline is Dec. 1.
