Mequon will host a special election in September to fill the vacant District 1 aldermanic seat on the Common Council, city officials decided Tuesday.
The seat was left vacant after Mayor Dan Abendroth won both seats in the April election and he chose the mayoral position. The special election for District 1 residents will be held Sept. 10. If there are more than two candidates in the running, a primary election will be held Aug. 13.
A special meeting was called Tuesday after the Mequon Common Council had previously failed to select a candidate by the required five-vote majority.
The election will cost the city $2,765. That cost will double if there is a primary.
