Galax City Council will use its Dec. 22 meeting to discuss the appointment of a council member to fill former council member Bill Webb’s unexpired term until the special election.
The election is pending approval. If legal permission is not granted for the election in November 2015, as council has requested, it must be held in May.
Webb resigned last month due to health reasons, but his term does not expire until June 30, 2016. Council must appoint someone to fill that term until the regular election in May 2016.
