Chuck Weaver

Peoria City Council To Fill Upcoming Vacancy

Oct 5, 2015

The Peoria City Council will soon have a vacancy.  At-Large Councilman Chuck Weaver will leave the post to fill a vacant term in the state senate.  City Attorney Don Leist says the council will have 60 days from Weaver’s resignation to pick a new councilmember.  He says the Council will likely issue a general notice and accept applications from those who are interested in the seat.  Whoever fills the seat will serve until the election in the Spring of 2017, according to state municipal code.  

This Peoria City Council has become accustomed to deferring several agenda topics in each meeting. This can be frustrating to the people affected by the decisions and to Council members working on the proposals.
