Avalon’s City Council officially called for a General Election to be held on March 3, 2020.
Four seats on the Avalon City Council and the City Treasurer position will be up for grabs in the upcoming municipal election on Catalina Island. The city of Avalon will have its mayor, two full-term council seats and one partial-term council seat be on the March 3, 2020 ballot.
Candidates have not yet announced any intentions to run for any of the seats.
Council members also voted to have candidates bear the costs of printing and translating their official statements.
The terms for each of the open seats are as follows: two years for mayor; two years for one council seat; and, four years for the other two council seats.
The one two-year council seat is for an uncompleted term. Richard Hernandez resigned from his council seat on Aug. 6, less than three months after Pam Albers suddenly died; Albers was elected to the City Council in late 2018. Council member Steve Hoefs was appointed to fill Albers’ seat.
