Following Amanda Huckabay's unexpected resignation from Casper City Council last week, city staff have begun looking for a new Ward I representative.

Anyone interested in filling the vacancy left by Huckabay should submit an application and resume to the City Clerk's Office at 200 North David Street no later than 5 p.m. Monday, March 19.

In a news release, the city says the term of the vacancy will start following interviews in March and will end Jan. 5, 2021.

The seat will be eligible for re-election in November.

In order to qualify for the position, an interested person must be registered to vote in Natrona County and a resident of Ward I since at least March 1, 2017.

Applications are available from the City Clerk's Office. For more information, the city clerk can be reached at 235-8215.

In her resignation letter submitted to council Friday afternoon, Huckabay said she was moving to St. George, Utah, with her fiancé and daughter.

Huckabay cited unforeseen issues with her former employer and issues with her daughter being severely bullied as reasons for her departure.

Generally speaking, Ward I is located between Poplar Street on the west and South Conwell Street to Bryan Stock Trail on the east. Boundary maps can be found here.
