Holts Summit Sets Date For Special Election

A date is now set for a special election for the Holts Summit Ward 2 alderman seat.

During the April 2nd municipal election both candidates Lisa Buhr and Chris Redel tied with 35 votes each.

By statute, the city was going to do a coin-flip to select a winner, however Buhr did not think that was the most democratic option.

During a meeting last night Holts Summit alderman voted to hold a special election on June 18th.

According to the city’s interim administrator the special election will cost about fifteen hundred dollars.
