Bonney Lake now has an empty City Council position to fill.

As of the Sept. 19 council workshop, Katrina Minton-Davis officially resigned from her council No. 7 position.

Minton-Davis told the council of her plans to resign during the Sept. 12 meeting after several other council members asked about her status as an elected official.

“My husband and I are buying a house that is outside of the city. It is a fixer-upper, so we have some work to do on it before we move on to it,” she said, adding she didn’t expect to start living in it until December and is living in a temporary accommodations outside city limits while the house is being finished.

She said they tried to find a home inside the city limits, “but the city limits are pretty small.”

“I’ve enjoyed seeing the changes and helping the city grow up,” Minton-Davis said in an interview after her resignation, adding that she hopes the council will look at its appointee options and pick a representative that will make the council more diverse.

The council has since put out the call for applications for the now open position.
