Several candidates have emerged to fill a vacant seat on Palmerton Borough Council.
Four applicants submitted their letter of interest to the borough as of Friday's deadline, according to borough Manager Rodger Danielson.
The individuals who applied for the seat are Gerald Robertson, Holly Sell, Jereme Barkanic, and Gerard Alfano.
The seat had been occupied by former council Vice President Chris Olivia, who resigned after he was named the borough's new mayor earlier this month. Barkanic also applied for the mayor's seat.
