The Town of Florence is holding an election(s) in the fall of 2016 for the purpose of electing a Mayor and three Councilmembers. Florence residents who are interested in running for one of four open seats on the Florence Town Council can pick up candidate packets at the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall, located at 755 N.
