Decatur residents interested in running for an open city commission seat can sign up 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to Friday at city hall.
The candidates must file the proper papers at the city clerk's office and pay the $144 qualifying fee. They must be legal adults and have lived in District 1 for at least a year.
The candidates will run March 19 in a special election to fill the District 1 city commission seat Bill Floyd held for 22 years. Floyd resigned last month to take a consulting job.
Only residents of District 1 will vote in the special election. Most of the district is north of College Avenue.
