The city of College Place is taking steps to replace its late mayor, Richard Newby.
The city council has 90 days from his death last Sunday to appointment a new mayor to serve until the next election in November 2015.
The city adminstrator, Pat Reay, who is currently running day-to-day operations, said the council will likely solicit the open position and conduct interviews before appointing someone to the position, as they have done in the past.
The council will meet on March 24th to discuss details.
Newby died of heart arythmia.
