Three Humble City Council member positions held by multiterm incumbents are up for grabs in a May 2 general election.

Those interested in running for Places 3, 4 and 5 have until 5 p.m. Feb. 14 to file a completed application with the city to be placed on the ballot.

Currently, Places 3, 4 and 5 are held by Norman Funderburk, Allan Steagall and David Pierce, respectively. Funderburk, the mayor pro tem, has served a total of six years; Steagall, 18 years; and Pierce, 19 years on City Council, according to Humble City Secretary Jenny Page.

According to the city of Humble website, a candidate must be a registered voter who has lived in the city for at least one year prior to the filing date and must not hold any other publicly elected office, among other qualifications.

If all candidates are running unopposed following a Feb 18 write-in candidate deadline, the election will be canceled during the Feb. 27 City Council meeting, Page said.
Election times and dates are set to be approved during the Feb. 13 council meeting, with all voting slated to be conducted at Humble City Hall, located at 114 W. Higgins St., Humble.

A full list of candidate qualifications and other election information can be viewed on the city of Humble website.
