An ordinance failed during Monday night’s Common Council meeting that would have required all candidates running for City office to have no debts owed to the City of Nome.
Before tonight’s regular meeting of the Nome Common Council at 7:00pm, a work session will be held to discuss a potential low income housing project in Nome. By the end of the regular meeting, Mayor Beneville is expected to appoint Raeshawndra C. Jett to the planning commission.
Mark Johnson was sworn into office by City Clerk Bryant Hammond during the City Council’s regular meeting, which also included an approval of rate increases for NJUS schedules A and B.
Once Mark Johnson is sworn in, he and the other councilmen will vote on an ordinance amending proposed changes to NJUS water and sewer tariff rate schedules A and B. If approved, rates will increase by 10%, starting immediately.
As of Tuesday night’s first count, challenger Mark Johnson led incumbent Matthew Culley by a margin of more than 2-to-1. A total of 482 votes were submitted for the municipal runoff, says Nome City Clerk Bryant Hammond.
These are unofficial results. The Nome City Council will meet on Thursday, November 3rd at 12 o’clock noon in the Richard Foster Building for a Special Session to canvass the results.
This week, the Nome City Council began discussion on the city’s proposed vacant structure registry.
