Two people qualified Monday to run for one of two open seats on the Flowery Branch City Council.

Sterling on the Lake subdivision resident Chris Mundy filed papers at 8 a.m. to qualify for the Post 1 seat.

Michael G. Justice also qualified for the Post 1 seat Monday.

Qualifying will run through Wednesday at Flowery Branch City Hall, 5517 Main St., which is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The election to fill Post 1, held by Damon Gibbs, and Post 5, held by Tara Richards, will be on June 16. Both Gibbs and Richards resigned for job opportunities that require them to relocate from the South Hall city.

The qualifying fee of each post is $144, which is 3 percent of the annual salary.

Richards’ position runs through December 2017, while Gibbs’ term is over Dec. 31.
