Quick-fire resignations at Frodsham Town Council mean there are now two seats available.
Councillor Jason Fraser, first elected eight months ago, left his post citing work commitments on December 2.
This follows the already departed chairman Mark Warren, who stepped down just a few days earlier on November 30.
Both men served the Lakes Ward and a notice was sent out for electors to come forward to try to fill the vacancies within two weeks.
Mr Fraser has said new work commitments meant he felt he was unable to devote enough time to his role to do it properly.
Mr Warren, who had served as a town councillor since 2011, asked for his reasons for quitting to remain private.
Cheshire West and Chester Frodsham councillor Andrew Dawson said: "I didn't know Jason because he was elected in May, but I knew Mark very well.
"I'm very sad to see him go, he made a huge contribution and tried his best in very difficult circumstances.
"I don't think people know how difficult it is to take on the role as a town council chairman."
Applications for the Lakes Ward posts must be sent to the returning officer at CWAC by December 18.
It is hoped a new chairman will be elected at Frodsham Town Council's next meeting at Castle Park House on December 14.
