CUMBERLAND — Applications are due Dec. 6 to fill the Town Council vacancy that will be created by Chairman Steve Moriarty’s election to the state House of Representatives.

Only six months will remain in Moriarty’s term when he steps down to represent House District 108. The council will appoint a replacement to serve until the June 2013 election, instead of holding a special election, Town Manager Bill Shane said Monday.

Interviews should be held next month, and the new councilor could be appointed at the Town Council’s meeting of Jan. 14, 2013, and sworn in two weeks later.

Anyone interested in serving should submit a letter and resume to: Brenda Moore, Council Secretary, Town of Cumberland, 290 Tuttle Road, Cumberland, ME 04021. Materials can also be e-mailed to [email protected].
