Roswell City Charter
August 25, 2013 | 12:38 PM

Article Ch.7 Municipal Court:
Section Ch7,20 Chief Judge and Associate Judges
(1) The municipal court shall be presided over by a chief judge, who shall be elected as provided in subsection (3) of this section, and such associate judges, part-time, or stand-by judges as may be provided by ordinance.
(3)The chief Judge of the municipal court shall be elected at the same election at which members of city council........

Section Ch7.50 Vacancy

If the vacancy occurs at any other time (other than within 12 months of the expiration of his term, as is the case) the vacancy shall be filled by a special election called for that purpose by the city council within a period of 60 day after the office becomes vacant.

That is the law that this Council is obligated to comply with. Failure to do so is a violation of the City of Roswell Charter.
