Council Elects Jim Stanford and Hailey Morton made a request to the Jackson Town Council in regular session Monday to set a process and begin advertising for the council seat to be vacated by Melissa Turley in January once she takes office as a Teton County Commissioner.  Mayor Mark Barron says the procedure on which the Town Council decided calls for submission of letters of interest and resumes to the Town Clerk, no later than January 4th at 5:00 pm.  Barron says the council is looking for people who are serious about the Town of Jackson for the two years remaining of Turley’s term.  Candidates must be town residents for the past two years. Barron says while contrary to the suggestion of some that one of the unsuccessful candidates from the November election be tapped, it still does not preclude those individuals from seeking the appointment.  He says if those people apply for the position, they will get the same consideration as the other applicants. The Council then intends to determine next steps and set a special meeting to interview applicants during the January 7th Town Council meeting, with the new Council seated. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be residents of the Town of Jackson and registered voters.
