Mayor, council seats are up for grabs

CLEAR SPRING - Two council seats and the position of mayor will be up for grabs this fall, and prospective candidates have until 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, to make their intentions known.

Applications for the positions are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Town Hall, according to Town Clerk Juanita Grimm.

Candidates must have resided within town limits for at least two years before the Nov. 7 election. Candidates must be at least 21 years old, a qualified voter and maintain permanent residence in the town during the two-year term of office.

Longtime Mayor Paul Hose Jr. hasn't announced if he will seek another term, nor has Carol Hovermale, who is filling the unexpired term of Gary Grove, the former vice mayor who moved outside town limits during his term.


The second council seat has been vacant since the death of Mason Mundey.

The position of mayor pays $100 a month, while council members receive $60 a month.

Michael Johnson, who was nearing the end of his three-year term, has resigned, according to Mayor Paul Hose Jr.

The three-member board meets on an as-needed basis.
