SB City Council fills vacant position

Posted: Updated:

Scottsbluff City Council names a new member at Monday night's meeting.

Local ‘certified public accountant' Elizabeth Hilyard will assume the seat left vacant by former Councilman Mike Deibert.

Although not originally from the area, Hilyard has lived in Scottsbluff for the past 13–years.  She now calls the area home and plans to stay because she says she believes in the community.

Hilyard has a very strong accounting and financial background and thinks economic development is critical for the community's future growth and success.

"I am raising my two daughters here.  They're young," says Hilyard.  "I think our youth need to be focused on.  I think they are the future of this community," she said.  "I think a lot needs to be invested in them because I do want my daughters to come back.  They may go away to school, they may stay here for school, but I would like them to come back here."

Hilyard is one of five people who submitted a letter of intent to fill the vacant city council position.
