  • February 2013 election—Held in lieu of a 2012 election. Four seats were up for election: three expiring seats plus one seat caused by a resignation mid-term. Three members were elected, with the fourth later being appointed.
  • October 2013 election—The regular 2013 election. Four seats were up for election. Three members were elected, with Nicholas Bashour continuing to hold his seat following the end of his term.
  • 2014 election—Four seats were up for election: three expiring seats, plus the seat not filled from the last election (filled in the interim by Nicholas Bashour). Three members were elected to two-year terms, and one was elected to a one-year term.
