Five candidates have qualified for two seats on the Blountstown City Council.
Ward 1 incumbent, Ronnie Williams, Sr., has opposition from former Councilman Clifford Jackson, along with newcomer Bill Riley. Ward 2 incumbent Janie Boyd will face Richard Armstrong on the ballot. Election day is set for Tuesday, Aug. 25, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Over in Altha, there will be no election as Carol Anderson was the only candidate to step forward. She will automatically fill one of the vacant Council seats, leaving another one still open. The Altha Town Council will now decide on appointing someone to fill the second seat. More details as they become available.
