Today: Atherton council may appoint incumbents to four-year terms

One subject meeting is at 3 p.m. Aug. 24

Atherton's City Council will hold a one-subject special meeting at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, to decide whether it should appoint incumbents Elizabeth Lewis and Cary Wiest to new four-year council terms.

Ms. Lewis and Mr. Wiest were the only candidates to file for two council seats up for election in November. When there is no contest, state law allows the council to cancel the election and appoint the candidates.

If the council decides to go ahead with the election, for which the council had budgeted $15,000, additional candidates could register as write-ins between Sept. 12 and Oct. 25.

The meeting will be in the town's council chambers at 94 Ashfield Road.

Following the meeting, an awards ceremony for the Atherton 2020 Student Environmental Challenge will be held in the council chambers at 4 p.m.
