Three Council seats open

as City moves to fall elections

Three seats on the Belle Plaine City Council will be up for election in the fall election, set for Nov. 7, 2017.

Any registered voter who lives within the City Limits of Belle Plaine, Kansas, can file to run. The deadline to file for those seats is Noon on Thursday, June 1, 2017.

Candidates must file through the Sumner County Election Office, located in the Courthouse, 501 N. Washington, Room 101, in Wellington. Local candidates cannot file at Belle Plaine City Hall, due to changes in state election laws.

The seats held by David Armstrong, Tori Bohannon and Lacy Tedman will expire in January 2018. Their positions on the Council were extended by Belle Plaine Charter Ordinance No. 17, which aligns City Ordinance with the change in state law which moved the elections from spring to fall.

Tedman, who was appointed to the Council, has said she plans to file for election. At this time, Armstrong and Bohannon have said they do not plan to file for the election.

If a primary is necessary, it will be held Aug. 1, 2017.

For additional information on filing, contact the Sumner County Election Office, 620-326-3395.
