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 with 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 council member 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.
