The biennial municipal election cycle will bring town trustee seats up for voters' decisions on April 1.
In Orchard City, two-term trustee Gale Doudy is term limited.
Jan Gage has served one four-year term and her position will be open this year. Ken Volgamore's position will also be open. Volgamore was appointed to complete a two-year term that was vacated by a resignation.
Orchard City Mayor Don Suppes is an announced candidate for state office in the November general election. He is midway through his second four-year term as mayor. If he wins his bid for Colorado State Senate District 5, the remainder of his term as mayor would be filled by someone else.
In Cedaredge, Mayor Pro Tem Gene Welch is completing his second four-year term and is term limited.
The trustee seats currently held by Laurence Smith and Ken Simpson will also be up for election.
Cedaredge Town Administrator Katie Sickles tells the DCI, "The town staff reviewed the City of Delta's municipal code regarding election timeliness. With all of the changes to election rules, Delta's schedule seems to make more sense."
Therefore, she said that a draft ordinance is under consideration for the town board's Jan. 16 meeting which, if adopted, would designate Jan. 21 as the first day for circulating nominating petitions to run for town board seats.blog comments powered by Disqus
