NOLANVILLE – The City Council on Thursday approved a time and date for a community candidate forum that will allow residents to question those running in the May 10 city elections.

Council and mayoral candidates will converge on the J.W. Sims Community Center at 6 p.m. April 15 to answer residents' questions.

Mayoral candidates James Marvin Cox Sr. and Mayor Carolyn Sterling will answer questions from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

The four candidates for two at-large, full-term council seats will answer residents' questions between 6 and 7:30 p.m.

Running for the two full-term seats are Wayne Hamilton, who is currently serving a year of a former councilman's term; Emma C. McCullough, current mayor pro tem; James W. Tibbetts Jr. and Monica L. Shults.

Donnie Rohloff, a former councilman, is the only candidate running for the seat currently filled by Hamilton.

Each candidate will have two minutes to answer questions submitted by residents. Residents can submit questions by visiting City Hall and filling out a question form, Sterling said.

Forms will have spaces for questions, the person's name and address, Sterling said.

The council also:

Passed a resolution for department heads to select and request training for city employees.

Sold two police cars for about $2,000.
