Also this reminder about what happens after a successful recall. In a nutshell, the Mayor Pro tem will serve as mayor temporarily until the council appoints someone to that position. The council is required to appoint someone within 90 days. The person appointed will only serve as mayor until the following November when the VOTERS will choose.

From Municipal Research & Services Center (MRSC):

City and town elected officials are nonpartisan, that is, they have no political party designation. When anelected, nonpartisan position becomes vacant, the remaining members of the legislative body make an appointment of a qualified person to fill the position.
163 If there are two or more vacancies and two or more councilmembers remain in office, the remaining councilmembers appoint someone to fill the first vacancy, then the remaining councilmembers plus the newly-appointed person fill the next, and so on until all of the vacancies have been filled.
164 If fewer than two councilmembers (i.e., one or zero) remain, the county legislative authority appoints one or more qualified person(s) to fill the vacancy or vacancies until the council has two members, and, once there are two members, those members can fill the remaining vacancies as outlined above.
165 The city or town council has 90 days from the date the vacancy occurred to fill the vacancy or vacancies. If the council fails to do so, the county commissioners or council make the appointment or appointments.
166 The county has 90 days (180 days from the date of the vacancy’s occurrence) to make an appointment; if it fails to do so, either the county or city or town may petition the governor to make the appointment.
167 The person appointed to fill the vacancy continues to serve until a qualified person is elected at the next election at which councilmembers are elected, if the election occurs 28 or more days after the vacancy occurs.
168 There are some special rules that apply when filling a vacancy in the office of mayor (in the mayor-council form of government). In a second class city, the appointment must come from within the city council.
169 In other classes, there is no such limitation. However, informal advice from the Attorney General’s office suggests that (except in second class cities) a city or town council cannot appoint one of its members as mayor unless the councilmember in question has resigned prior to the appointment.

It should be noted that the person that is appointed to the position of mayor more than likely will want to run for the spot in November. That means that they will need to prove themselves dedicated to taking the city in a positive direction in a manner that the voters deem appropriate and effective in short order.
