The City of Slaton will officially move forward with an election on a Type B Economic Development Corporation, after commissioners called the special election Monday evening.

The election will take place on May 4 with early voting taking place on April 22 through 30 at the Lubbock County Elections Department, located at 1308 Crickets Ave. in Lubbock.

Dorothy Kennedy will serve as the Joint Elections Officer, Joint Early Voting Clerk and Central Count Manager for the Election.

If passed, the Type B Corporation would dissolve the current Type A Corporation without adding a tax increase, and allow SEDCO to promote quality of life projects.
