DeKalb commissioners are poised to approve the qualifying fee schedule for candidates running for office later this year.
The proposed fees, which generally amount to 3 percent of the salary for the office sought as required by law, are $540 for Board of Education candidates, $1,151.24 for Board of Commissioners candidates and $4,439.42 for those seeking to become state court judges.
Commissioners are expected to sign off on the fee schedule later this month.
DeKalb is also ironing out an agreement that will allow it to take responsibility for conducting the new City of Stonecrest’s municipal election.
