This will be the first special election for the city.
"The person elected will serve the remainder of Councilman Large's term, until Dec. 31, 2015." City Clerk Sudie Gordon said. "That person will be up for re-election in the November 2015 municipal election."
Gordon said qualifying for the November special election would be from Aug. 26 to 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., like the qualifying for the general election.
A write-in candidate will have until Sept. 9.
"On the ballot for the Nov. 5 election will appear a special election for an un-expired term with the names of any candidates who qualify or act as write-ins," she said.
Large said he's enjoyed his time as a council member and is grateful for the experience.
"Living in and serving the Milton community has been wonderful," he said. "I have met some great people and the city is truly the nicest place we've lived."
