Highland Village has cancelled their municipal election scheduled for this May.
The city secretary received just one application for each place on the council ballot, and the filing deadline and declaration of write-in candidacy have passed, according to city officials.
Upon approval of a council resolution to cancel the election, the following candidates will be declared elected:
Scott McDearmont, Place 1 (Mayor)
Bill Irwin, Place 2
Louis Robichaux, Place 4
John McGee, Place 6
The candidates will begin their official duties on May 11, 2010.
This is the first time the city has cancelled an election since Highland Village became a Home Rule city in 1986.
