Saginaw City Clerk Janet Santos reminds those interested in applying for City Council to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Councilman Larry Coulouris, they must have their City Council Member Application and Affidavit of Eligibility filed with the City Clerk’s Office, located at 1315 South Washington Avenue, Room 102, by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 5, 2016.

Applicants must be a Citizen of the United States, age 18 years or more, a resident of Michigan for 30 days, a resident and a registered voter in the City of Saginaw, and may not be in default to the City.
