“These are the same people that are going to be developing ordinances that affect how businesses run, either esthetically or in other ways, like the stormwater regulations and how high water and sewer rates are going to be,” Duncan said. “These are the people that have to decide how well the fire department is funded and if they have the right equipment to put a fire out or if the police have the right equipment and manpower to deal with any crimes that might occur.”

Each candidate will have a one-minute introductory statement before the forum moves to a question-and-answer session. Candidates will have 90 seconds to answer each question, which Braaten will randomly select. Each candidate will have a 30-second rebuttal if wanted.

A minimum of six questions will be asked before each candidate is allowed a 90-second closing statement.

Light refreshments will be served at the event, which is free and open to the public.

The deadline to register to vote in the city election is Oct. 11. Early voting is scheduled to begin Oct. 17 and continue through Nov. 2. Election Day is Nov. 5. For more information, call the Board of Elections at 636-6610.
