ESTO - The Town of Esto is looking for a few good men - or women - to apply to fill Seat 2 on the Esto Town Council.

Due to the recent resignation of Councilwoman Darlene Madden Adams, applications are now being accepted to fill her vacant Seat 2 position, which expires in December, at which time the seat will appear on the municipal election ballot. Interested residents must submit a council member application by noon, Monday, June 19, 2017.

Esto Town Council will meet Thursday, June 22 to narrow the selection of candidates to no more than five or to amend the application process schedule. Selected candidates will be invited to each deliver a three-minute statement and participate in evening interviews with council members, tentatively scheduled for Thursday, June 29.

Selection of the new council member will take place at 7 p.m. Monday, July 3, with swearing-in taking place during that meeting, immediately followed by a reception in Council Hall.

Applications are available at Esto Town Hall, located on North Highway 79 in Esto, and are posted on the bulletin board for availability after office hours. Questions regarding the application submittal should be directed to the Town Clerk Yvonee Hagans.

The Town Council of Esto recently approved a twice-monthly meeting schedule and now meets at 7 p.m. the first and third Tuesday of each month.
