Jim McCormick resigned from his position as Salida City Councilman June 7. McCormick served for almost eight years as councilman.
“I have enjoyed working with city staff, elected officials and the citizens of Salida. I am resigning to spend more time with my family,” McCormick said in his resignation letter to the Mayor and Councilmen.
According to the Salida Municipal Code Chapter 2, Article 2, “All vacancies on the City Council created other than by the regular expiration of a term shall be filled by appointment made upon a majority vote of the membership of the City Council within sixty (60) days after the vacancy occurs. Persons appointed to fill a vacancy shall serve until the next regular municipal election, at which time a successor shall be elected to serve out the remainder of any uncompleted term.” McCormick’s term expires this November.
Council will discuss how to proceed during their regular meeting at 6 p.m. June 18 in Salida City Council Chambers, 448 East First Street.
