Council talks new mayor

Posted: January 3, 2013 - 9:48pm  |  Updated: January 4, 2013 - 9:32am

Soldotna Mayor Peter Micciche will clean out his office Wednesday as he transitions to leave for service in the Alaska State Senate, he said at the Soldotna City Council’s Wednesday meeting.

During the meeting, council and community members showered the senator-elect with praise.

“I’m extremely appreciative of him, in my opinion, of being an ideal city father,” said Nels Anderson, once a council member and a potential future candidate for mayor. “He’s just been absolutely perfect as far as I’m concerned. I don’t care who replaces him; they’re not going to be able to do the kind of job he’s done.”

On the same day Micciche steps down, the city council will hold a special session to set a date for a special election to fill the rest of Micciche’s term, which expires in October 2014.

Until the special election is held and a new mayor is voted in, Vice Mayor Brenda Hartman will serve as mayor.

Also at the meeting, council set a public hearing to discuss the allocation of a $5,000 grant for investigating internet crimes against children. The hearing will be Jan. 23 at city hall.

Soldotna City hall is located at 177 North Birch St. The next council meeting is Jan. 16 at 6:30 p.m.
