The McFarland City Council plans to appoint an individual to fill a vacancy on the council at its next City Council meeting, despite a statewide order made Thursday by the Governor of California for people to stay home.
A group of key area stakeholders joined together Wednesday morning at Hodel’s in Bakersfield to meet with local media outlets to offer ideas for ongoing Census coverage.
The McFarland City Council has issued a public notice, inviting residents to submit letters of interest to serve as a city council member.
The public notice comes after McFarland’s former mayor Manuel Cantu resigned following the Planning Commission’s vote to reject the motion to allow GEO to turn two prisons into immigrant detention centers in mid-February.
