Barry Pennell attended his final meeting as a Paonia trustee on Sept. 25. He and his wife are moving to a home outside the town limits, making him ineligible to serve on the town board of trustees. He submitted his letter of resignation earlier in September. He was elected to the board last April, with a term ending in 2022.
The seat is required to be filled by board appointment no later than Nov. 29.
