Is there a filing fee involved to run for office?

No. The governing body has the discretion to establish a filing fee, but the City of Avalon has not done so. The City provides equal opportunity for all candidates to fully participate by not charging a filing fee; however, there is a fee for candidates wishing to publish a candidate statement in the voter guide.
