Voters in Waterford will select a new City Council member in November after Murray Day resigned because he moved out of town.
According to City Manager Tim Ogden, Day notified the council of his intention to move to Newman last month. He made it official July 3 when a deed to the new property was recorded.
Day won election in 2010, when he ran unopposed. His term was to expire next year.
The evening of July 3, Ogden said, council members decided to fill the vacancy using the November election. Waterford had a local election set for Measure W, a facilities district assessment.
Never miss a local story.
Measure W aims to replace two lighting and landscaping districts with a single citywide Community Facilities District. Homeowners would pay $60 per year; the annual fee would be $120 for commercial units. It's a tax increase, so it will need two-thirds approval.
