City Council Election Dates to Change

Post Date:10/11/2017 11:36 AM
The City Council voted 3-2 to move the City Council election from March 2019 to November 2018. The move will shorten incumbents' terms by 4 months and was made to comply with new state law. The State mandated that all municipal elections be placed on state election dates to increase voter turnout. Given the choice to extend their terms, shorten their terms, or shorten future Council terms by a year, the Council elected to shorten their terms and hold the election in November of even years.
