The Akron Board of Education will hold a special meeting at 9 a.m. Saturday to discuss the process of filling a vacant board seat.

The meeting will be held at the Akron Family Restaurant, 250 W. Market St.

Board member John Otterman, who overdosed last week and was administered four doses of an opiate overdose reversal drug, resigned his position this week.

His biography and photo have been deleted from the school board website.

Board President Patrick Bravo has said that options include appointing people who have never served, appointing previous board members or opening it up as an application process.

The person who fills the vacancy will serve the remainder of Otterman’s term, which is until 2019.
