LAKE WALES – Members of the Lake Wales City Commission voted to cancel the April 3 municipal election Feb. 20.
The election would have allowed voters to pick commissioners for seats three and five in Lake Wales and vote to change the city commission term from two to three years. Members of the commission voted unanimously to cancel the election because Deputy Mayor Robin Gibson ran unopposed for seat five, because nobody qualified for seat three and because it was not likely many would turn out to vote if the only thing on the ballot was increasing term limits.
