The City of Slaton Commissioners ordered an election for May 4, 2024 for the Commissioner Ward II and IV seats Monday evening (Jan. 9) during its monthly meeting at City Hall.
The Ward II set is currently held by Jim Taliaferro while the Ward IV seat is held by Valarie Cubit-Johnson.
The board also approved a resolution authorizing the sale of a surplus asphalt distributor. City Manager Wade Willson said they wanted to surplus the machine because the costs of using it as well as other issues made it unfeasible to use. The machine is not made anymore either and they are hoping to get some money back.
Commissioners approved a resolution designating The Slatonite as the paper of record.
