Joe Meyer was appointed Wednesday, Oct. 16, to the Nisswa City Council.
That seat opened in mid-July after former longtime council member Lenny Hodgson resigned for personal reasons.
Three men applied for the open council seat: Meyer, a lieutenant with the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Department; Don Jacobson, who ran in the 2012 election for a council seat; and John Ryan, who retired in August as a Pequot Lakes police officer.
Current council members Tina Foster and Jan Pierce interviewed the three candidates and ranked them for a council decision Wednesday.
