Mayor's choice for council fails vote

(KLZA)-- In a secret ballot, Pawnee City Council members voted 2-1 against Mayor Deb Klein's recommendation to fill the vacant City Council seat Monday evening. 

The Mayor recommended Donnie Fisher be appointed to fill the vacancy.  Fisher previously served an unexpired term on the Council from June 2018 to November 2018 and then lost as a write-in candidate for a Council position. 

Mayor Klein asked those voting against the recommendation to explain why but there was no comment from the Council members.  

The next Council meeting will be November 12.  The Mayor could make a new recommendation at that time.  The next election is coming up in May, 2020.
