City Council Hears from Council Candidates

Homeless Center Plans Halted by City Council

Yakima City Council hosts a special meeting this afternoon to hear from potential city council candidates.

The council heard from 13 candidates vying for a spot on the council, after former member Sara Bristol moved away with her family.

The city council agreed to wait until someone filled Bristol’s spot before voting on a new mayor — last time, the council split on the vote 3-3.

Candidates were narrowed down to 6 and will be interviewed tomorrow morning.
