2018 Election notice

Election season is quickly approaching.  December 1st is the first day for candidates to circulate nomination papers.  Packets of paperwork are put together for anyone who decides to run and available at City Hall.  Candidacy paperwork and nomination papers are due back by January 2nd.  Any incumbents not seeking re-election are required to file a notification of non-candidacy no later than Friday, December 22nd.

This year the following individuals will need to seek re-election if they wish to continue in their position:

Mayor – Wayne R. Schmidt

1st District – Kevin Schmidt

2nd District – Janice Mueller

3rd District – Eugene Cleveland

4th District – Jan Dart

Alderperson candidates require 20 signatures.  Mayoral candidates require 50 signatures.  We suggest going over by a few.  Once turned in we’ll cross reference with any other nomination papers turned in for the same office and if there are duplicates only the set of papers that the individual signed first will count.  We’ll also eliminate any signatures by residents that don’t reside within your district.
