    Despite what it says on the forms, petitions to run for local office are due in to the City Clerk's office Monday.

    Paperwork distributed by City Hall gives the deadline as Jan. 30. City Clerk Henry Heck said this was an error attributed to the fact that petitioners have two days to withdraw their petitions and keep their names off the ballot.

    “It was just that the dates were mixed up,” he said. “Even though the deadline is the 28th, it's not an official petition until the 30th.”

    Heck said he tried to get notices to everyone who took out petitions.

    “If Bob Smith comes out of the hills on the 29th and says 'here's my petition,' we'll look at that then,” Heck said.
