Monday is deadline to run for council; YHD calls for candidates

Nomination petitions for potential Yuma City Council candidates are now available at City Hall.
There are four seats that will be up for election in the April 5 mail-in election. Three will be for three-year terms, and one for two years. The seats currently are held by Daniel Ebersole, Terri Frame, Marc Shay and Marylu Smith-Dischner.
Yuma will be going to November council elections in 2025, thus the reason for the slightly shorter terms. The final April municipal election will be in 2024.

The forms are due back at City Hall by 5 p.m. on January 24. Five people had taken out nominatin petitions as of earlier this week.
