“We’ve had it happen before, where there might be four seats open and only three people take out papers, then it’s the top vote-getter,” Kitchin said. “Then what happens is I have to send them a letter saying they’ve got the most votes and they have to get back in touch with me and say yes or no.”

The deadline to pull nomination papers is Friday, July 26, at 5 p.m., and after that candidates will have until Tuesday, July 30, at 5 p.m. to submit their papers with the appropriate number of signatures to be certified by the Board of Registrars.


Just a reminder that City Hall will be closed Thursday for the holiday and will reopen on Monday, July 8. Anyone who has a pressing issue to attend to at City Hall this week is urged to stop in by Wednesday.


The following meetings are scheduled this week and are open to the public:


City Council Ordinance Committee, 7 p.m., City Hall Auditorium.

Cultural Council, 7 p.m., 14 Cedar St., Artist Studios.


Fireworks, Sunset, Woodsom Farm.


Planning Board, 7 p.m., City Hall Auditorium.
