City Council vacancies are filled by an appointment of the City Council. Those interested in applying must be a registered voter living in the City of Mount Vernon, having resided within City limits for at least 1 year; and must be a resident of Ward 1. The appointee will serve until a Ward 1 candidate is elected by the public in November of 2021.
