Residents interested in becoming mayor have until August 1 to turn in a letter of interest.

The mayor will be selected at special meeting August 7 at 6 p.m.

Letters should be sent to the Newkirk City Clerk’s Office at P.O. Box 469, Newkirk.

The post became open when Justin Beard announced his resignation at the July 10 city meeting. Beard has accepted a position at the Oklahoma City Fire Department.

Commissioners will review the letters of the interested parties and will name a mayor at the August 14 meeting.

In the meantime, vice-mayor Dereck Cassady will be the interim mayor until one is appointed.

The interim mayor would serve through February 2018 when the mayor’s position will be on the ballot.
