Council will cancel election

The Friona city council will meet Monday March 10 at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers at 619 Main St. All council meetings are open to the public.

The council terms of Martha Barker and Greg Lewellen and the Mayor’s position are all expiring. Deadline for sign-up was Friday February 28. City manager Patricia Phipps said all three incumbents signed up for re-election and are unopposed so a general election will not be held.

The council seat now held by Nancy Davis is up for special election. She was appointed to the council to fill an unexpired term but must now run in a special election. The deadline to sign-up for the unexpired term special election is March 10 by 5:00 p.m. Mrs. Davis has signed up for the election and at this point is unopposed.

The council will officially cancel the election during Monday’s meeting. However a school board election will be held in the council chambers May 10.

In other council business, the bid for sealcoating will be awarded, consider a negotiated settlement between the city and Atmos Energy regarding their intent to increase rates, approve tax roll exemptions for 2013, and consider approval of accounts payable and financial statements for February 2014.

This is a tentative agenda and subject to change. The final meeting agenda is posted on the window of city hall 72 hours prior to the meeting.
