Milford, Iowa mayor and council position to be decided in a special election

Posted:
MILFORD, Iowa (KTIV/KUOO) -

Petitions calling for special elections for Mayor and a seat on the city council in Milford have been filed with the City Clerk's Office.

Acting City Administrator Mark Stevens tell KTIV's News Partner, KUOO news the petitions meet legal requirements and were filed prior to the deadline of 5:00 p.m. Monday, July 7.

Stevens says the city council will act on a resolution at its meeting this coming Monday, July 14, directing the County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections to set a date for the special elections.

Once that date is set, candidates will be able to take out nomination papers.

At a meeting June 23, the council voted unanimously to appoint Bill Reinsbach and Rody Peterson to fill out the terms of Mayor and a city council member, respectively.

The action came on the heels of the resignations of Don Lamb as Mayor and Rick Kilts as a council member.

The two stepped down citing differences with some of the other council members stemming from several factors, including what some say was the forced resignation of Matt Skaret as City Administrator.
