Changes coming to Yakima City Council

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The position for mayor was voted on at Tuesday night's council meeting and ended in a stalemate.

It was between current Mayor Micah Cawley and Councilmember Rick Ensey. Council decided to vote again once Sarah Bristol's replacement is appointed.

For now the new assistant mayor, Kathy Coffeey, will preside at meetings. All 13 applicants for the open seat will be interviewed at open public meetings, and then the pool will then be narrowed to the final four.
