Wanted: Hampton Ward I council member

A new member will be appointed to the Hampton City County within the next two months, but just who that new member might be is still up in the air.

     Ward I Council Member Valerie Haugebak submitted her resignation recently after taking a job that conflicts with meetings and workshops. The council agreed to move forward with the appointment process at its workshop Monday to fill the void left by Haugebak, whose resignation takes effect July 11.

     There are currently 14 months left on Haugebak’s term. Any Ward I residents interested in the position should contact City Hall for more information.

     “We’re trying to get everybody’s opinion. We want to open it up to the public and give people a chance,” said Mayor Brook Boehmler.
