Scottville to pay tribute to Pfefferle; will discuss vacant commissioner seats.

April 6, 2015

SCOTTVILLE — The Scottville City Commission is expected to pay tribute to recently deceased commissioner Bonnie Pfefferle through a resolution at its regular meeting 5:30 p.m. this afternoon. The commission has two vacancies to fill, following the death of commissioner Bonnie Pfefferle and the resignation of commissioner Jim Schiebner.

Pfefferle died March 24 following an extended battle with cancer. Schiebner has accepted a job position in another town.

The city’s charter requires the commission to fill commissioner vacancies within 30 days, otherwise it needs to hold a special election.

Pfefferle was a second ward commissioner, meaning she represented residents east of Main Street. That seat’s term Schiebner was an at-large commissioner, meaning he represented the entire city.

Both commissioners would need to run for election in November 2016. The second ward position would be a four-year term from 2017 while the at-ward position would be a two-year term from 2017 (because that seat would not expire until 2018).

Anyone who has resided in the city for at least one year qualifies to run for commission. Those interested should contact City Manager Amy Williams at [email protected], 231-757-4729 or write to City Hall, 105 N. Main St., Scottville, MI 49454.
