District officials have said they hope to have the appointment process finished by the end of the month.
The chosen person will serve until December 2014, the remainder of Fitzpatrick's term. The directors receive a $221 stipend for service day, with a maximum of six per month.
Fitzpatrick resigned Jan. 14 while facing a lawsuit from his Sanitary District colleagues. They had contended that him serving on both the district and Costa Mesa Planning Commission from December 2010 to May 2012 was incompatible.
Fitzpatrick has since reapplied for the Planning Commission, whose members are appointed by the City Council.
