Lakeway City Council has approved an ordinance calling a general election in the City of Lakeway on May 2.

The election centers on Council Members Laurie Higginbotham, Louis Mastrangelo and Steve Smith, who will have each served one term, and per the city charter, are eligible to run for a second term.

City information states all three have submitted an application for ballot as of Jan. 15 and adds the city is required by law to order the election by ordinance no later than Feb. 14. The deadline to file an application for ballot is Feb. 14 at 5 p.m.

If no other candidates file to run for a spot on the council, officials will likely cancel the election.
