Two candidates have filed for the Baker City Council election in November.

Four others are collecting signatures in advance of the 5 p.m. Tuesday deadline, City Recorder Luke Yeaton said.

Benjamin Merrill and R. Mack Augenfeld have collected the required signatures, Yeaton said.

Four others who could be on the November ballot are incumbent Councilor Roger Coles, along with Randy Daugherty, a former councilor, and James Thomas and Rustin Smith.

Four of the seven positions on the City Council are up for election this fall.

The incumbents for those slots are Dennis Dorrah, Roger Coles, Barbara Johnson and Clair Button.

Due to a clause in the city charter that limits councilors to serving no more than two consecutive terms, neither Dorrah nor Button is eligible to run for re-election.

The top three vote-getters in November will be elected to four-year terms.

The fourth-place finisher will serve a two-year term.
