Voters in La Porte City will elect three members to serve on the City Council when they go to the polls on November 3, 2015, as the terms of present Council members Todd Butler, Sarah Craft and Mike Johnson expire at the end of the year.
Nomination papers for the office of City Council are now available at City Hall, located at 202 Main Street. The forms may also be downloaded from the Secretary of State’s website at https://sos.iowa.gov/elections/electioninfo/cityelections.html.

The deadline for filing is 5:00 PM on Thursday, September 17, 2015. Due to a change in state law, candidates can no longer file nomination papers at their local municipality.
