Filing opens for Eastover elections

Filing is open for two seats on Eastover Town Council in the April 6 election.

Candidates can get applications at Town Hall. The fee is $50.

Election director Ella Suber said the deadline to sign up is noon on March 5.

The two seats now held by Odell Weston and Walter Jones are up this year. It was not known Tuesday whether the two plan to seek re-election.

Races are nonpartisan, and terms on the five-member council are for four years.
