Brooksville Council changes requirements on filling a vacancy

Council changes rule on filling a vacancy

Residents of Brooksville won't have to pay the estimated $25,000 for a special election needed to fill the vacant seat of council member David Pugh. Meeting in a special session Thursday, the City Council voted unanimously to adopt an ordinance that will do away with the requirement to hold a special election within 90 days of a council vacancy. Instead, council members will be able to chose a replacement who will remain in the position until the next regularly scheduled general election. In January, the council appointed Frankie Burnett to fill Pugh's seat after he resigned to take a job with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. He will serve until the next general election on Nov. 2, and said Thursday he intends to run in the election for a full term.
