The candidates for City Council include:
In District “A”-James Doody
In District “D”-incumbent Bill McCurry and Bonnie Beckstein
In District “E”-incumbent Harry Butler and Teresa Coons
At–Large Seat-Douglas Thomason, Kevin Derr, James Winterswolf, Christopher James
The city council spots will not be the only thing on the ballot for the general election being mailed to voters in February. A question concerning a cable television franchise will also be on the ballot.
