There are contested races for city council places 4 and 5 on the city ballot.
In the race for Place 4, incumbent Freddie Taylor is being challenged by Charles Oxford in his bid for another term on the council.

Incumbent Place 5 Councilman Gary Spraggins is opposed by Emily Glass, a compliance officer at City National Bank.
