COUNCIL TO APPOINT SMYTH'S SUCCESSOR.

Byline: JUDY O'ROURKE Staff Writer

SANTA CLARITA -- Community panels will convene to screen candidates seeking appointment to the City Council seat soon to be vacated by Councilman Cameron Smyth, who was elected last week to the state Assembly.

The council decided Tuesday to appoint Smyth's replacement instead of holding a special election, which could have cost $175,000. Since that vote, city officials ironed out the details.

Panelists will likely conduct public interviews over the coming weeks and winnow the pool of hopefuls to a small group, from which council members will pluck an appointee to serve out Smyth's term through April 2008. Participants in the three panels will rank each candidate.

Comments from community members will be sought.

City residents interested in the post must file applications before 5 p.m. Nov. 27. Each application must contain signatures of 25 registered voters who live in the city. Applications are available at City Hall, 23920 Valencia Blvd., or online at www.santa-clarita.com.
