Three candidates have declared interest in the two city council seats to be filled in the April election. Kevin Carlson and Jay Stooksberry are seeking the at-large seat currently held by Ed Sisson, who is term limited. Nathan Clay is unopposed for the District # 3 seat held by Bill Raley.
In addition, Delta voters will be asked to consider taxation on the sale of marijuana, even though sales are currently prohibited. There will be two questions, one about excise taxes and the other about retail sales tax. Ballots will be mailed in mid-March.
During a preliminary hearing in Delta District Court on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Judge Steven Schultz found probable cause for second degree murder charges against Heather Jones.
Jones previously faced three counts in the shooting of Ryan Redifer in Paonia on Jan. 12, 2018 -- assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and violation of a protection order.
