The Bellevue City Council has been short one member for almost two months, since Gene Ramsey stepped aside to serve as Blaine County sheriff.
This Thursday, the council is expected to pick a nominee for the vacant seat from several who have expressed interest in filling the position.
"We've had several calls from people who are interested," Mayor Chris Koch said.
Only two formal letters of interest had been submitted to City Hall as of last Friday, from Janet L. Duffy and Sean Sanderson.
The council has complete authority over who gets chosen for the position. Koch said a decision would likely be made at the Thursday, May 26, council meeting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
Council members serve two-year terms and are paid $50 per month.
