Canal Winchester City Council is seeking statements of interest to fill a vacant seat following the resignation of Councilwoman Ashley Ward.
Ward submitted a letter of resignation to city council. Pending the acceptance of her resignation at council’s July 5 meeting, council is now soliciting statements of interest to temporarily fill the vacant seat on council. This individual would be appointed as early as July 5, 2022 and serve a term expiring Dec. 31, 2023.

Forms are due by noon on July 1 and can be found on the city’s website at canalwinchesterohio.gov. Council will review, discuss, and interview the applicants during the July 5 meeting. An appointment may occur that evening.
