Senoia qualifying dates set

It was an otherwise short agenda item approved with little fanfare at Monday night’s meeting of the Senoia City Council. But the approval of the qualifying dates for municipal elections later this year could result in increased interest since Mayor Robert Belisle has announced he will not seek reelection.

Belisle’s term will expire at the end of the year, as will those of Councilman Jeff Fisher and Councilman Larry Owens. Senoia uses the at-large method of electing council members.

The council set Aug. 26-28 as the qualifying dates for the three seats. Those interested can qualify at city hall between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

The qualifying fee for mayor is $360 while the qualifying fee for council positions is $90.
