WINFIELD — The Winfield City Council voted during its regular meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 20, to declare a vacant seat on the council.
Councilman Eddy Posey passed away on Friday, Dec. 9, leaving an open seat on the city council.
Posey was appointed to the city council in late 2021, after Rusty Barnes, who held the seat before him, had to resign after moving outside Winfield city limits. Posey ran against Barnes for the seat in the last election and lost by a slim margin, which made Posey the council’s first choice to fill that seat.
Now that chair is vacant once more, and the city council is taking action to fill it again.
The council voted to declare the seat vacant on Tuesday and now has 60 days to appoint someone for the position.
