Jay Carlyn's May 6 resignation resulted in a vacancy on the Bear Valley Community Services District's board of directors.
As is typical when a vacancy occurs, staff prepared a recommendation for a process of appointing someone to fill the seat for the remainder of the term, or until the first Friday in December, following the Nov. 8 general election.
If the timeframe was different, the board could call for a special election. But no election could occur any earlier than November.
