GALT — Longtime Galt City Clerk Elizabeth Aguire Haglund made a surprise announcement at Tuesday’s regular Galt City Council meeting that she would be resigning from her position at the end of the month.

At that time, council members can either appoint someone to fill the elected position until the end of Haglund’s term, or call for a special election, City Manager Jason Behrmann said.

Haglund’s term ends in 2016.

She could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Haglund was first elected city clerk in 1996. She has worked for the city since 1987.

She was recently at the center of a measure that would have changed the clerk’s position from elected to appointed. It failed, having only garnered 1,891 votes (46.55 percent), according to final November election results.

Earlier in Tuesday’s meeting, new Councilwoman Lori Heuer’s proposal to amend the council procedural guidelines to limit the term of mayor to one year failed to garner the support needed for approval.

The motion essentially failed in a 2-2 vote, with Councilman Curt Campion siding with Heuer.

Councilwoman Marylou Powers was absent.

Currently, Galt’s mayor and vice mayor are selected in even-numbered years to serve two-year terms.

Heuer wanted the city to follow the example of most other Sacramento County cities, where the mayor and vice mayor are selected on an annual basis.

The position is largely ceremonial, Heuer noted, as Galt voters do not elect a mayor the way voters in larger cities such as Sacramento do.

“All five of us are equal,” she said Wednesday. “I just think the opportunity needs to be there for everyone to serve.”
