Candidates for local boards that filed papers last week include three incumbent candidates for seats on the City Council of Glenwood City. They are Ben DeGross, Austin Sandow and Kent Kletscher. The term of office is for two years.
The present council president Robert Unruh is running unopposed for mayor. He has been leading the City Council meeting since the resignation of former mayor, John Larson. If Unruh wins the mayors set, then his present seat on the council will need to be filled by council appointment.
Members of the City Council receive a monthly payment of $300.00, while the mayor’s salary is $600.00 per month and all members receive an extra $50.00 for each special meeting.
Three positions are open on the Boyceville Village Board that are up for election this year with Brad Steven, Sonya Zebro and Shawn Mittlestadt presently holding them. Zebro and Stevens filed papers by the deadline and will appear on the ballot. But the village office did not receive any nomination papers from Mittlestadt nor did he file a certificate of noncandidacy.
Village President Lukas Montgomery has filed for re-election for the top seat on the village board.
Village board members and the village president each receive $40.00 per meeting.
The Boyceville School Board has only one seat open on the five-person board. Steve Olson is the person currently holding that seat and he has filed non-candidacy paperwork. Sharon Formoe was the only person to file for that open seat and will appear on the April ballot.
For members of the Glenwood City School Board, two people are up for election on the seven-person board. They are Lisa Kaiser and Jon Mrdutt. Mrdutt has filed his noncandidacy papers. Kaiser has filed for reelection and Steve Davis has also filed and those two names will appear on the ballot.
