Leaders in Front Royal continue their efforts to change the election date.
They're trying to do it through an ordinance this time. It's not as binding as a charter change in the general assembly, but it could get the job done.
They're also looking into ways for federal employees to run for office.
According to the Hatch Act, they're not allowed, but the town might be able to get around that through a special exemption where those employees would have to run as independent.
The vice mayor said having the election during another election saves the town around $8,000.
"Any cut that you can make in a budget regardless of what it is. I think, when you look at government you should look at it the same you would your business or your household income. If you can cut expenses, then at the end of the day I think you're doing good," said Front Royal Vice Mayor Shae Parker.
He said this is a "wait and see" kind of approach, and it will be interesting to see what happens.
