Cedar Falls Special Election Date Set


During the Cedar Falls City Council meeting on January 6, 2020, the council voted to appoint an individual to the vacant At-Large position. The appointment nomination took place during the council meeting on January 20, 2020, at which time the council voted to appoint Nick Taiber to the At-Large seat.  

On January 29, 2020, the City of Cedar Falls received a petition requesting a Special Election to fill the vacancy. This was filed without objection. According to Iowa Code, the City Council must call for a Special Election, and they did so by adopting Resolution 21,889 at the City Council meeting on February 17, 2020.
