Aulbach acknowledged the city had accomplished a lot this year, but added, "We have a lot more to accomplish going forward. I'd like to see new initiatives like working to become a green city.We also have to work to ensure that our zoning comes into alignment with what the comprehensive plan has outlined."
Lowe said, "My family and I have lived here since 1998 and we have a vested interest in this community long term, with four daughters between the ages of 2 and 11. My vision going forward in the next term will be beautification and redevelopment."
No other candidates qualified on Monday.
