Peosta Mayor Special Election

An open mayor seat in Peosta will be filled with a special election. Former Peosta Mayor Larry Meschers’ resignation was officially accepted by the city council on October 21. The resignation happened too close to the local election held on November 5th, so the city was not able to put the seat on the ballot according to Peosta City Administrator Whitney Baethke. Baethke says her office received a petition with more than 130 signatures on Monday morning in favor of a special election. Only 45 were needed to trigger a special election. Baethke said her office sent the petition to the Dubuque County Auditor’s office which is in charge of organizing the election. It will likely be held on January 14th. If the council or county approves that date, the deadline to file for candidacy will be December 20th.
