Because Jeff Long has resigned from the city council, this has created a vacancy on the New Sharon City Council.  The City Council intends to fill the vacancy by appointment on December 4, 2019.  The electors of the City of New Sharon have the right to file a petition requiring that this vacancy be filled by a special election.  If within 14 days of publishing this notice, there is filed with the city clerk a petition with 200 signatures or 15 percent of the total voting list in the last preceding regular municipal election, whichever is less, which requests a special election to fill the vacancy, then the appointment is temporary and the council shall call for a special election.  If no petition is filed, then the appointment is permanent until the next regular election.
