Nominating petitions available in Dixon

One park board member says he won’t run again

DIXON – Four seats on the Dixon School Board and three on the Dixon Park Board are up for grabs in April.

Nomination petition forms now are available; they must be returned by Dec. 24.

Only one of the seven incumbents, school board member Woody Lenox, has picked up a petition, said the school board’s secretary, Roxanne Mahan.

Another of the seven, John Weitzel of the Dixon Park Board, has decided not to seek re-election, he said.

The other school board members who must decide whether they’re going to run again are Board President Tom Balser, Tracy Greenwalt, and Pam Tourtillott.

The other two park board members whose seats are up in April are Board President Bill Ost and Shane Miller. Miller was appointed by the board in November after Keith Aurand resigned.

Nominating petitions are available at the park district office, 804 Palmyra St., from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m., and at the school district office, 1335 Franklin Grove Road, from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

School board candidates need a minimum of 50 signatures; park board candidates need a minimum of 54.
