Also Tuesday, the Minneapolis City Council heard a proposal to increase the filing fees for municipal elections.
The goal is to cut down on the number of candidates in the future.
Currently, the fee is $20 to run for office, and there were 35 candidates for mayor in the past election. The proposal would increase the filing fee to $500 for mayor and $250 for council members.
Candidates wouldn't have to pay the filing fee if they file a petition.
A public hearing is scheduled Dec. 5.
