The Campbell City Council is holding a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. to decide whether to go through with the November elections or simply appoint the two incumbents for another four-year term.
If the council votes to appoint, it could save the city $51,000, which will go back into the city's general fund.
Both Campbell Councilman Jason Baker and Mayor Mike Kotowski are eligible to run for one more, four-year term under the city's term limits. If elected/appointed, their term will expire November 2016.
The nomination period for potential candidates was between July 16 to Aug. 10 and only Baker and Kotowski filed. Because there are only two filings for two open seats, the council will have to decide to either appoint the two incumbents or spend approximately $51,000 to hold an election, Campbell City Clerk Anne Bybee said.
The Campbell City Council meeting takes place in Council Chamber at Campbell City Hall, 70 N. First St. at 6:30 p.m.
