The filing period for the May elections of Mayor and City Council closed at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28, with five candidates filing for office.
Current Mayor Pro Tem Marion Grayson was the only candidate to file for mayor. She will be unopposed on the ballot. Mayor Jim Covington announced earlier this year he would not seek re-election after eight years as mayor, the longest stint ever in Belton.
The two expiring terms on the City Council were filled by Councilmember Grayson and Councilmember John Agan, who did not file for re-election.
