Carthage is looking for someone willing to serve on the city council.
Second-ward Alderman Jim Fink resigned his seat on the city council this week. He had served in that capacity for two years.
He was forced to step down after moving outside the city limits.
Mayor Jim Nightingale says Fink has suggested a possible successor.
Nightingale says, “He has a person in mind, which I haven't talked to yet. But, hopefully, I'll have somebody on board by the second meeting in September.”
The mayor did not identify the candidate.
Nightingale has up to 60 days to make a nomination for the open seat. The city council will have the final say on the nominee.
