City Council seat now open

Posted on: November 5, 2008

At the last City Council meeting, Bovo was bid a fond farewell, and presented with a city proclamation and many well wishes — the city was obviously confident of his win. His departure however, poses the task of filling his council seat, which is not up for another year.

City Attorney William Grodnick proposed two options — either appoint someone or call for a special election. It appears we’ll be going with an appointment, based on council concerns about the cost associated with running a special election. A replacement must be named no more than 30 days after the Nov. 4 election, meaning the Nov. 25 council meeting should be a good one — mark your calenders. Also up in the air is who will succeed Bovo as council president.

Bovo will continue to serve the city of Hialeah as his district office covers portions of Hialeah and Miami Lakes.
