The City of Dresden Board of Mayor and Aldermen will hold a special called meeting at 6 p.m. this Wednesday at Dresden City Hall to officially declare the board vacancy and call for qualifying candidates.
Interested alderman candidates will have until noon on Wednesday, Sept. 8 to qualify for this two-year seat at the Weakley County Election Commission office in Dresden. The candidate for this seat will be elected during the Nov. 2 election and will hold the position for two years.
The special meeting is open to the public.
