(La Vista, NE) -- The La Vista City Council is accepting applications to fill a vacancy after a member resigns.
Tuesday night, Council member Mike Crawford resigned from his Ward 1 seat, effective immediately, due to health reasons. Crawford was re-elected in 2020 and has served on the City Council since 2008. He also served previously from 1980 to 1984.
“It was an honor to serve with Mike, he is a dedicated public servant,” said Mayor Douglas Kindig. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family as he navigates these health issues.” The city says Mayor Kindig will make a recommendation for a replacement to the City Council by April 5th. The term of this vacancy runs through December 2024.
