It is a great service to be able to hear and sometimes see what is going on at the meetings when you can not make into them, thanks for keeping us all informed. About the elections, are you saying there may not be any one running against the current slate and that is why there may not be any elections?

Cynthia, none of the council members are up for election, neither is the Mayor. The election in question is related to the liquor store petition and will take place if the petition receives enough signatures for a referendum to be held.
