San Juan City Council members will decide Tuesday whether to appoint a new member to the city council or hold a special election.
At the council's Jan. 20 meeting, council member Roy Byrnes announced he would retire, effective Feb. 17.
According to a city staff report, a special election would cost the city anywhere from $105,248 to $115,071.
If the council choose to fill the vacancy by appointment, that individual would hold the seat until the November 2016 election.
