Highland Village Residents will see new leadership at the city level this year.

A new mayor will be elected in the May election after Mayor Charlotte Wilcox finishes her last term. The mayor and council members serve two-year terms.

No person can serve for more than four consecutive terms on the council, regardless of place, according to the city.

Eligible people can file to have a place on the ballot from Jan. 19 to Feb. 18.

To be eligible, a candidate must be a registered voter in the city and must have resided within city limits for 12 consecutive months prior to the election.

Wilcox was first elected to City Council Place 3 in May 2009. In May 2014, she was appointed mayor after the resignation of former Mayor Pat Davis. She was elected mayor in 2015.

Before her council stint, she served on the planning and zoning commission from 2006-09. Professionally, she is a licensed Realtor with All City Real Estate and co-owner of Wilcox Pest Control.
