SYRACUSE -- A candidate who came one vote short of winning a seat on the city council in November is among the field of people expected to apply for a council vacancy.
Dustin Schuler confirmed Tuesday that he will formally apply for an open seat on the council following the resignation of Councilman Matt Kimmel.
Kimmel, who had two years remaining on his term, resigned Feb. 9 to take a job out of state.
Applications for the post will be taken by City Recorder Cassie Brown until Tuesday.
Brown said she has not received many inquiries about the seat. She said the position has been legally posted and she expects a big rush on the last day.
A full listing of all applicants will be made public Wednesday, Brown said.
