Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


Even Year Elections?

Erik Hjelle did bring up an interesting idea in his farewell editorial in the October city newsletter: Should Maplewood switch to even-year municipal elections? From my perspective, costs savings is the biggest likely benefit, especially now that the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale school district no longer has odd-year elections.

I've placed an item on the agenda for Monday, under Council Presentations, to sound out the rest of our city council and see if there's interest in gathering more information and discussing the idea, and wrote a one-page memo for inclusion in the meeting packet.
