The City of Portage has a vacancy in the 1st Aldermanic District on the Common Council and Mayor Rick Dodd is seeking an interested individual to fill the empty seat. The incumbent Alderperson resigned her seat as she moved out of the district. An Alderperson represents the interests of the constituents that reside in his/her District, therefore you must be a resident of the District to be eligible for consideration (See map of Aldermanic District 1 below). Council meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 7:00 p.m.; additionally Alderpersons typically serve on 2-4 Committees annually. The Council is the chief legislative and policy making body for the City of Portage. Alderpersons serve a 3 year term. The individual appointed to fill this vacancy would serve through April 21, 2020 and would need to seek re-election for another 3 year term.
Interested persons who reside in the 1st Aldermanic District are requested to contact Mayor Rick Dodd at 608-697-7065 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
