Kavanaugh also said he would like applicants to be interested in running for election in November for the council seat. Mason’s position would have been up in January 2015.
Pillager Fire Chief Randy Lee attended the meeting to discuss possibly contracting with the city of East Gull Lake for fire protection. It was noted that the council will need to decide on a fire service by the regular July meeting.
