Fox, and Parke L. Killpack have filed to run for those seats. In the two-year mayor race, Gil L. Conover and Clifford W. Snow have filed.

Three four-year council seats will be open and those filers are Gary Arrington, Jim Gordon, Michael K. Hurdsman, Julie Jones, Travis Larsen, Jerry Livingston, and Norman Richardson. Five citizens have filed for the mayoral race, which will be a two-year position. They are: Sharon Kay Baker Earl, Hilary Gordon, Cade Jones, Bob T. Mills, and Ronald G. Zufelt.
