When former Stephenville City Councilman Alan Nash resigned in July to become district attorney, it left a vacancy in place 5.

On Tuesday, the city council will meet to discuss filling that crucial spot.

Nash resigned from the city council after being appointed district attorney by Gov. Rick Perry.

City Administrator Mark Kaiser said previously he expects the vacancy will be placed on the November ballot to fill the remainder of the term which expires in May. The council could also opt to appoint a qualified candidate to fill the seat until a successor is elected.

The council will also hear an annual report and budget presentation for the Cross Timbers Arts Council by Executive Director Julie Crouch, a report by the Public Health and Safety Committee and will approve the annual office supplies contract.

Also on the agenda is a public hearing to consider a rezoning request from "Industrial District" to "Multiple Family Residential District" for property located at 1091 N. Race Ave.

Stephenville Police Chief Patrick Bridges will also recognize three citizens who assisted police during a shooting at Allsup's in June.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers at City Hall.
