At Tuesday's City Council meeting, it was announced that officials with the Secretary of State's office have given the City of Nitro permission to move their elections from June 2 to July 9.

All of the candidates' petitions to run were approved, so long as they received the correct number of required signatures to run for the office of mayor. One candidate did not receive enough signatures and will not be included on the ballot.
