The Cedar Springs City Council has chosen Ashley Bremmer, who currently serves as vice-chair on the city planning commission, to fill the vacancy left by former councilor Raymond Huckleberry.
Bremmer, who works for West Michigan Bail Bonds as a bond agent, has served on the planning commission since January 2010, but will resign that position to serve on the city council, since the commission already has two city council members. She will be sworn in at the next city council meeting on April 14.
“I welcome her to the city council,” said Mayor Charlie Watson. “I wish her the best and look forward to working with her. I was impressed by her enthusiasm and think she’ll do a fine job.”
Bremmer was the only applicant for the position.
Watson would like to see more people get involved with their city government. “We are looking for people to serve on various boards and commissions,” he said. Anyone with interest should send the mayor a letter to: PO Box 310, 66 S. Main Street, Cedar Springs, MI 49319.
