Lawrenceville City Council seeking candidates for open seat

The Lawrenceville City Council will fill an open seat at its Feb. 4 meeting. But, first, the body wants to see some candidates.

Councilman Tony Powell resigned at the first council meeting of 2019 in order to fulfill a campaign promise to serve only eight years in the position. His term has 11 months remaining, so the council must choose a replacement.
