The deadline to apply for the vacant Ward 2 New Ulm City Council seat is this coming Monday. The seat is open following the recent resignation of Councilor Todd Olson. Being involved in city government is a time commitment. New Ulm’s Ward 2 encompasses the majority of the north and west sides of the city north of Franklin Street. Interested applicants can submit resumes to city hall through Noon on Monday. Interviews will then be held April 26th and 30th, with the new appointment expected to be made during the May 1st New Ulm City Council meeting. The person appointed would serve through the end of the year, with the seat appearing on the November ballot.
