The City Clerk Department will accept applications, which should include a resume, letter of intent and questionnaire, beginning Sept. 1. The deadline to apply is Oct. 7.
The city commission will review the applications and consider an appointment at the Nov. 1 meeting. The appointment will take effect in March.

Jacquet, a lawyer, is one of three Democrats vying in the Aug. 30 primary for the vacant House seat, which covers some of West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach and Lake Park as well as a thin coastal strip south to Delray Beach. He’s been a commissioner in Delray since 2012 and vice mayor since March.
