Fall election for Grover Beach City Council may not be needed

With three candidates in Grover Beach running unopposed for three seats on the City Council, city leaders on Wednesday will decide whether to appoint them and cancel the Nov. 2 election.

Doing so would save the city about $10,000, according to a staff report from City Clerk Donna McMahon and City Attorney Martin Koczanowicz.

The Grover Beach City Council/Improvement Agency will hold a special meeting on at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in council chambers at 154 S. Eighth St.

The mayor’s seat and two council seats are up for election. Mayor John Shoals is running for re-election, and Councilman Bill Nicolls will also run for another term.

Phyllis A. Molnar, of Past Present Future Bookkeeping in Grover Beach, is also running for a council seat.
