EVART — Evart city clerk Andrea Grupido was sworn into office recently. Grupido was appointed to the position of city clerk by the Evart city council in December.

The position of city clerk is an elected position however, no candidates were on the ballot for the seat during the November general election. As per Evart city charter, the city council must appoint a person to the position when none has been elected.

A ballot proposal to amend the city charter making the position an appointed position, rather than an elected position failed on the November ballot.

Grupido will fulfill the vacancy until the next general election which will be in November 2024, at which time she will be required to run for election to retain the position.
