 In addition, Dakotah McGinlay (District 3) and Kathi Meyer (At Large) have not yet been determined if eligible. The determination centers around questions of residency and term limits, respectively.

Potential council applicants had to fill out a candidate affidavit and a nomination petition signed by at least 25 registered electors within their district. The at-large petition had to be signed by at least 25 registered electors from the entire city. Paperwork was due to City Hall on Monday, August 23 at 5:30pm.

Eligible candidates must be 18 years of age or older on the day of the election.

The newly elected City Council members shall take office at the first City Council meeting on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, following the November 2 election. During that same meeting, the President and President Pro-Tem are elected by the new council.
