Why do I see political signs near the city's main roads?
We’ve received this question a number of times recently. Political signs in the right-of-way are considered a nuisance. While we don't have the capacity to patrol for them, we'll respond if we're alerted about a potential issue. We respond to sign complaints by 1) Removing the sign. 2) Contacting the campaign. 3) Informing the campaign where to retrieve the sign. You can submit a complaint about a political sign via this online form.
Council Vacancy Decision
On August 14, 2018, the City Council decided that an upcoming Council vacancy will be filled by appointment, by the 2019 City Council. The Council position would fill an unexpired two-year Council term vacated by a resignation, effective December 27, 2018. Following the November 8, 2018 election, the Council will open a call for applications for interested candidates that will close about one month later. These applications will be provided to the City Council that takes office beginning January, 2019, who will approve a review and selection process.
