Councilwoman Ashley Lay resigns from chair; city seeks applicants

Published on October 13, 2017 with No Comments

Ashley Lay took her Milton City Council seat in 2014 and said being on the council has given her a greater perspective. However, Lay said it’s time to step down. Her term will end Monday, October 16. The process to choose another council member has already begun.

Lay said her reason for stepping down is due to family obligations. Her baby, Max is 8 months old.

She said what was most surprising as she began to learn about the functioning of the city was the importance of the utilities. “I learned about the significance of the inner workings of natural gas, water and waste water management. It’s fascinating. We take a lot for granted. I turn on the faucet or the stove and it works. I take the trash to the street and it’s picked up,” she said, “but there’s a lot happening for these services work.”

According to the city manager’s office, candidates should notify the city clerk’s office of their desire to be considered to fill the seat for the remainder of Lay’s term. Once their paperwork is reviewed by the city clerk for eligibility, which includes a residency of living in Ward 1, the applicants will then be forwarded to the council, which will review the candidates and make a selection at the Nov. 14 council meeting.

The selected candidate will fill the remainder of Lay’s term, which expires in 2018.
