Lake Elsinore Council Appoints Peter Weber to Council

Peter WeberLake Elsinore City Council members have voted to appoint former city treasurer Peter Weber to finish the term of Amy Bhutta, heading off what would have been a costly election for the city.

Weber will be sworn in at the Sept. 27 meeting for a 14-month stint on the council. The seat is up for election in November 2012.

Bhutta resigned in July to spend more time with her family in Minnesota. A special election would have cost the city up to $70,000.
