Elections for special districts throughout Delta County are scheduled for May 8. But only one -- Delta County Memorial Hospital -- has a sufficient number of candidates to trigger an election. All others have cancelled their elections, citing no more candidates than offices to be filled.
For the hospital board, six candidates have declared interest in the three four-year terms to be filled: Bruce Mixter, Wayne Wolf, Doug Speedie, Tammy Smith, Robert Stechert and Dick Gilmore. Jim Briscoe, Dory Funk and Bill Hellman are coming off the hospital board.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
