(Sept. 22, 2022) With 12 days to go until residents head to the polls, the next iteration of Berlin Town Council already looks just about in place — save for one race in District 4.
To be clear, there are four candidates on the ballot: incumbents Jay Knerr and Dean Burrell and newcomers Tony Weeg and Steve Green.
Green and Knerr are running unopposed in District 1 and at-large, respectively, while Burrell and Weeg face off in District 4 in the only actual race of the elections.
District 1 is comprised of northwest Berlin, including downtown Berlin and areas on the northwest quadrant of the intersection of routes 50 and 113.
District 4 is comprised of northeast Berlin and includes much of the property along Route 113 and the north side of Flower Street.
For mailed-in absentee voting applications, the due date is 5 p.m. on Tuesday — exactly a week before the election.
The deadline for selecting write-in candidates — who will not appear on the ballot — is 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
The deadline to receive applications in-person at Berlin Town Hall is 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30.
