There are five men running for City Council, including incumbents Chris Condie and Paul Hancock.
Lehi voters are encouraged to attend the debate and may submit potential debate questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring their questions for the candidates to the Lehi Free Press offices at 29 N. 100 W. in Lehi.
