Mayor Craig Covey is stepping down from the Office of Mayor on January 4th, 2011, with the intention of taking a seat on the Oakland County Commission. This will leave a vacancy at the office and, if filled by a current Council Member, a vacancy in the City Council.
To become either, you must be twenty-five years of age, a citizen of the U.S. and a Ferndale resident two years prior to appointment. Appointees will fill the vacancy until the next election, November 8, 2011.
To apply for either position, applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by December 27th, 2010. Finalists will be interviewed at the city council meeting January 24th, 2011 and the appointment(s) will be filled no later than February 3rd, 2011, according to the city website.
