Grand Rapids residents will help select candidate to fill vacant commission seat
Some community members will have a say in who fills vacant city commission seat in Grand Rapids.
The Third Ward city commission seat was held by David Allen until he resigned last month. Allen is focusing on his job at the Kent County Land Bank.
There are ten finalists for the empty Third Ward city commission seat. A subcommittee of residents, business owners and current commissioners will interview them at city hall tomorrow from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m.
The interviews will be live streamed on Facebook and YouTube. No decisions will be made until after final interviews in two weeks.
You can find a full list of the finalists for the position and subcommittee members on the Grand Rapids city website.
