TIFFIN– Municipal elections will take place Tuesday, Nov. 5. Voters in Johnson County will be asked to choose city council members to fill any vacant seats. There is only one public measure on any municipal ballots this time around; Iowa City residents will be asked if the age for entry to a bar that serves alcohol should be changed back to 19 years, instead of 21. Iowa City, University Heights and Coralville all have strongly contested races for council positions, and Coralville has four candidates running for its mayor’s seat.
