Dundee City Council has open spots
The citizens of Dundee will cast ballots in November for three positions on the City Council, as well as mayor, and candidacy election packets are now available at Dundee City Hall, 620 S.W. Fifth St., during normal business hours.
The city charter requires that a person seeking elected office in Dundee must be a registered voter and a resident of the town for at least one year immediately preceding the election. Candidates may either pay a filing fee of $35 or obtain approval from the city recorder to circulate a nominating petition to collect and witness a minimum of 13 signatures from registered voters within the city.
The position of mayor is elected for a two-year term, which will expire in December 2018. Councilors are elected to four-year terms that will expire in December 2020. The positions are elected on an at-large basis and those receiving the majority of votes will be elected.
