Elk River City Council will appoint Zerwas’ replacement
Elk River City Council Member Nick Zerwas’ replacement will be appointed by the City Council, not elected by voters.
The City Council made that decision by consensus Monday, Dec. 3, after accepting Zerwas’ resignation. His resignation is effective Jan. 8.
Zerwas was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in November and will be sworn in Jan. 8. He will attend his last city council meeting Jan. 7. See more in Associate Editor Joni Astrup’s Star News story.
