Four years ago, the City Council election here was canceled because no one ran against the three incumbents. In 1992, there were two challengers, one of whom died two months before the election. The incumbents were returned to office. But the Nov. 8 election will be different for the 6,000 registered voters in this city of about 12,000 residents. Seven candidates--five of them challengers--are vying for the three open seats on the council.
