This seat on the Stephenville City Council between Carla Trussell and Mayor Pro Tem Brady Pendleton will stay vacant for another year. The seat, Place 3, became vacant when Doug Svien became mayor in May. The council had the option to either appoint someone to fill the seat until May, when the next city and school election will be held, or let voters decide in May. They unanimously voted to leave it in the hands of the voters.
