The New Bloomfield Board of Aldermen will meet at 6 p.m. tonight at New Bloomfield City Hall.

There are no new ordinances on the agenda, but the board will hear reports on maintenance, city and police business.

The board will also approve bills.

The City of New Bloomfield did not hold an election Tuesday.

In 2015, New Bloomfield voters passed a ballot measure to allow the city to forgo elections when the number of candidates who have filed is equal to the number of open positions, a cost-saving measure.

Only two candidates — incumbent Daniel Kliethermes and Dean Powell — filed to join the New Bloomfield Board of Aldermen.

As there were only two seats available, the city did not hold an election.

Though no votes were counted for the race, Kliethermes and Powell will not be sworn in until next month's aldermen meeting — scheduled for May 13 — as the city waits for Callaway County Clerk Ronda Miller to certify final election results for all other races.

Final results will be certified no later than April 20.
