A replacement for outgoing Mitchell City Councilman Dan Allen will be announced today, according to Mayor Ken Tracy.

In an interview with The Daily Republic, Tracy said he chose Allen’s replacement on Tuesday from a small field of candidates. Tracy declined to say specifically how many people applied. “They didn’t beat my door down,” he said.

Allen, 54, submitted his resignation letter last month. Allen, who has represented Ward 2 since he was appointed in May 2006, is moving out of his ward, which is located in southeast Mitchell.

Tracy said he will recommend Allen’s replacement be appointed and sworn in at the next City Council meeting, scheduled for Feb. 3.
