All four of the open seats will be filled by the incumbent council members. Each of the four wards had an open seat up for election, but the only petitions submitted to fill those seats were filed by the incumbent council members. Gary Haak in Ward 1, Mark Crisp in Ward 2, Mike Geraets in Ward 3, and James Borchert in Ward 4 will all serve another three-year term on the Dell Rapids City Council.
The Dell Rapids School Board will still continue to have their election on April 9th as three petitions have been filed for two open spots. Matthew Weiland, Denise Cavigielli, and Lee Bollock will be up for election.
Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. All precincts will vote at the Lutheran Church located at 701 North Orleans Avenue in Dell Rapids.
