A new council member will be appointed to serve the remainder of Ron Bates' term, the Los Alamitos City Council decided. Councilman Bates, a longtime fixture in the Los Alamitos community, died Sept. 6 at the age of 76. At a special meeting Monday, Sept. 26, the City Council had to decide whether to hold a special election (which can be costly), appoint someone to fill the remainder of his term, or leave the spot empty until the seat is up in two years. The City Council unanimously chose to appoint.
