FONTANA – The City Council will continue its version of “Musical Chairs” on Wednesday night.

Council members are set to discuss how to fill a spot on the dais left open when they tapped Frank Scialdone to become mayor earlier this month after former Mayor Mark Nuaimi took a job as city manager in Yucca Valley.

Fontana City Manager Ken Hunt said the council can appoint someone to the open spot or hold out until the Nov. 2 election.

If the council appoints someone, it could be done at the meeting, or else the council could call for applications and conduct interviews, Hunt said.

“My guess is they are probably going to leave it vacant until the election,” he said.

If the council appoints someone to the seat, it wouldn’t be the first time.
