Press Release - December 22, 2017

At a Special New Meadows City Council Meeting held on December 21, 2017, the New Meadows City Council accepted the resignation of Mayor Anthony Koberstein. 

 

Koberstein was elected to the New Meadows City Council in November 2007 and took his seat in January 2008.  He served four years.  In April of 2014, Koberstein was appointed back to the New Meadows City Council.  In September of 2014 he was appointed to serve as Mayor of New Meadows.  In November of 2015 he ran for Mayor and was successful in his bid.  His term would have ended in January 2020. 

 

Under Idaho’s Election laws, the seat may be filled by nomination from the seated City Council until the following General City Election, which will be held in November 2019.

 

Citizens interested in being nominated to this seat must reside within the City of New Meadows for at least the last thirty days and be registered to vote prior to nomination.  The New Meadows City Council is looking for to see resumes of persons interested in filing the mayoral vacancy.  The City Council also desires to see someone with leadership abilities, an understanding of the current projects the city is undertaking, familiar with computer technology, and the ability to communicate effectively with the patrons of the city, vendors, contractors, other elected officials and city staff.  Idaho State Code requires the City Council to appoint a mayor from either within or outside of the City Council that will have the best interests of the city in their service.

 

The duties of the Mayor are currently being completed by the New Meadows City Council President, Julie Good, who has served as Council President for the last two years.

 

The council also desires to gather the same information from citizens that may want to serve on the City Council in the future if a vacancy exists.

 

New Meadows City Council meets regularly on the 2nd Monday of every month at 7pm.  Special meetings are occasionally called throughout the year.  The Mayor position is paid $1,800 annually.  Council Members are paid $1,200 annually.  Both annual salaries are paid in November of each year.  Resumes should be emailed (cityclerk@newmeadowsidaho.us) or dropped off at New Meadows City Hall.  Resumes become public record and will be disseminated to the City Council and public at future meetings as well as electronically on the city’s website and social media pages.
