Coggon hosts Aug. 1 special city council election

COGGON — Residents of the Linn County community of Coggon will fill a vacant Coggon City Council seat in an Aug. 1 special election.

Voting will be held from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the American Legion Post 362, at 200 First St. in Coggon.

Early voting will take place until July 31 at the Linn County Auditor’s Office, in the Jean Oxley Public Service Center, 935 Second St. SW in Cedar Rapids.
