Next Thursday (June 20, 2013) at NOON is the filing deadline for anyone qualified to run for District 1, 2, 3, 4 or 6 City Council.
Qualified means a registered voter, having resided in the district for one year and return a qualifying petition with 25 signatures from within the district you reside and hope to represent.
All current council members have served one term (four years) and are eligible for one more term.

The current Council members are Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis in District 1, Duane Grieve in District 2, Brenda Palmer in District 3, Nick DellaVolpe in District 4 and Former Mayor Daniel Brown in District 6.
