Five file for Ward 3 Raymore City Council vacancy

FROM THE CITY OF RAYMORE: Due to Richard Hall’s resignation from Raymore City Council, a vacancy currently exists for Ward 3 Council representation.

With the advertised filing deadline now passed, five individuals have applied for this Council seat: Janelle Biernbaum, Kyle Ervin, Jay Holman, Robert Piepho and Marvin Shaw.

Council will conduct a public meeting to interview these applicants and receive information from Ward 3 residents who are eligible to vote at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 5, at Raymore City Hall. 

Thereafter, the Council – by majority vote of its remaining members – will appoint one of these applicants to fill the vacancy until the next regular municipal election in April 2014, at which time this seat will be up for election for a two-year term. Should the Council determine no qualified person has applied, the application process will be repeated until a qualified applicant has been appointed.

Materials for the special City Council meeting, including the applications for each candidate, may be found on the City’s Web site at

Anyone with questions may contact the City Clerk’s office at 816-331-3324.
