Applications available for Duluth council seat

The city of Duluth now is accepting applications for the At Large City Council seat that will be vacated by Council President Elissa Hansen on July 17. People interested in serving out the remainder of Hansen’s term, which ends in January of 2020, can apply online at or pick up the needed paperwork in person at the city clerk’s office, Room 330, Duluth City Hall, 411 W. First St.

The deadline for applications to be submitted is 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 9.

Candidates will be interviewed by the Duluth City Council following the July 12 agenda session meeting, and three finalists will be selected. The council will appoint an interim At Large councilor after a second round of interviews on July 16.

Hansen said she will relinquish her seat mid-term because of the demands of a job she recently took as president and CEO of The Northspan Group Inc., a regional nonprofit development organization.
