The Paonia Town Council has a trustee vacancy and letters of interest are being accepted at town hall until Tuesday, Sept. 3. The council will appoint a new trustee at its Sept. 10 meeting.
The trustee will serve until the next general election held next April.
Only those at least 18 years of age, a registered elector and having resided within Town of Paonia limits are eligible to apply.
Letters may be delivered to 214 Grand Avenue or mailed to Town of Paonia, P.O. Box 460, Paonia, CO 81428.
Corinne Ferguson resigned as a trustee as of July 31. She left because she moved outside the town limits.
The council on Aug.13 decided to appoint a replacement rather than have a special election which would cost $3,000 or to have the Delta County commissioners appoint a trustee in 60 days from Ferguson's resignation.
Because Ferguson was also mayor pro tem, Mayor Neal Schwieterman appointed trustee Larry Wissbeck to be the new mayor pro tem.
Wissbeck thanked the mayor, joking that being mayor pro tem had been a lifelong ambition of his.blog comments powered by Disqus
