According to officials, Aileen Lord (609 votes) and Darrell Williams (532 votes) unofficially finished in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

"A total of 567 votes were needed for a majority, which means no run-off election will be necessary," officials said."Condon, Cox and Habib will take office on May 7. The newly elected council members' first City Council meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10."

Council members are elected to 4-year terms.

The incumbent council members for the three seats – John McCants, Franklin Moore and Jerry Tekac – chose not to run for re-election.
