On the eve of the election that is allowing voters to make significant changes to the Bellaire City Council, some city officials are already expecting a runoff for two races.
The Place 3 and Place 5 council seats each have four candidates vying for the position.
“I don’t know if any one person will get 50 percent of the votes,” said Bellaire City Clerk Tracy Dutton.
Whatever happens, it is clear that next year’s city council will look much different than this year’s. There will be at least three new council members.
If the Place 3 and Place 5 races are indeed headed for runoffs, the date of that election would be Dec. 12, Dutton said.
