Potential Gaston councilors get cold feet
When the Gaston City Council met last Wednesday, April 13, members expected to welcome another councilor to their table to replace Randy Hoodenpyl, who stepped down last month.
The most recent city water bills had included a flyer notifying residents of the council vacancy, along with vacancies on the citys
Parks & Recreation Committee and Budget Com-
Gaston City Recorder Wenonah Blanchette said three Gaston residents responded with interest in the council position. All three met the qualifications of being registered voters and living within the city limits. Blanchette said she instructed them all to come to the council meeting last Wednesday, but two called beforehand to say theyd changed their minds. The third one failed to show up.
The remaining council members will discuss the vacancy at their meeting next month.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
