Hallandale Beach, Florida– Last night, the City of Hallandale Beach City Commission held a Special meeting to discuss the filling of the vacancy of the Mayoral Seat.

• Acting Mayor Keith S. London to serve as Mayor until the Special Election to fill the unexpired term of the Mayoral seat or until a reinstatement is made by the Governor (whichever comes first).  The special election for the Mayoral seat will be held on November 6, 2018.

• Commissioner Michele Lazarow (Seat 4) to serve as Vice Mayor until the end of her term in 2020
