KENNETH CITY — The qualification period for the March 11 Kenneth City municipal elections opens at 8 a.m. on Friday. All documents and other information must be turned in by noon Dec. 20. Two seats, currently held by Phil Redisch and Adam Mayefsky, are up for grabs.
Candidates must be registered voters who have lived in Kenneth City for at least two years before qualifying to run. Kenneth City voters decided this year to change to a council-manager form of government in which a professional manager sees to the daily activities of the town while a mayor and four council members are responsible for setting policy and passing a budget. The transition to that format will be complete just before the election and those elected will be on the first council to operate under the new format. Council members serve for two years and earn $300 a month. The two top vote getters will go into office. For information, call (727) 498-8948.
