YAKIMA, WA - The City of Yakima has received 8 applications for the city council seat that Sara Bristol is leaving at the end of the year.

The city says it will be difficult to replace a leader like Bristol but the open seat is a great opportunity for the council to bring in some new ideas.

"It does give us a chance for some new thinking to come into the council and to be able to take a different directions than they may have under a council with Sara," Randy Beehler of the City of Yakima said. 

The deadline to apply is noon Tuesday. Current city council members will review all the applications, hold interviews and then vote on a new council member.
