Kenneth City election qualifying open

KENNETH CITY — Voters in this town have a chance to change the face of the council with three seats — the mayor and two on the council — up for grabs in the March 10 election.

Kenneth City's qualifying period runs until noon Friday. Candidates for the council must have been a registered voter and resident of Kenneth City for at least two years before qualifying to run. Candidates for mayor must have been a registered voter and resident of Kenneth City for at least three years before qualifying.

Kenneth City has about 4,500 residents and an annual operating budget of about $2.3-million.

The town has a council-as-manager form of government, which is responsible for the everyday business of the town. Each council member oversees a town department, and the mayor acts as the chief executive. Council members are also in charge of hiring the town clerk and the police chief. Council members must attend at least one meeting a month and additional meetings and workshops as needed.

Council members earn $300 a month. The mayor is paid $500 a month. Council members serve a term of two years and the mayor serves for three years. The election is at-large and nonpartisan. For information or to pick up a packet, call Town Clerk Nancy Beelman at 544-6655 or go to Town Hall, 6000 54th Ave. N.
