SNOWMASS VILLAGE – Snowmass Village Mayor Bill Boineau this week became the first candidate to throw his hat in the ring for the fall election.

“There is an election in Nov. I have decided to run again for the mayor’s seat,” Boineau said at the tail end of Monday’s Snowmass Village Town Council meeting.

Boineau said he made the early pronouncement in order to “get people thinking about it.”

How early is the mayor’s announcement? Well, nominating petitions will not even be available until Aug. 3, according to Town Clerk Rhonda Coxon. After that date passes, then all forms need to be notarized and returned to the clerk’s office by Aug. 23.

However, now that Boineau has announced his intentions, he needs to fill out his candidate affidavit form within 10 days.

In addition to the mayor’s term, which runs for two years, there are also two council member seats up in November. Reed Lewis and Arnie Mordkin have not yet formally announced their intentions. The council terms run four years each.

Colorado River connectivity channel gets go-ahead after environmental assessment

Ten years after plans for a diversion route for the Colorado River around Windy Gap Reservoir outside of Granby was finalized, the project is a go. A consortium of state and commercial water entities announced Monday that in late June or early July, construction crews will begin excavating dirt from land adjacent to U.S. Highway 40, to fill in part of the existing reservoir and dredge a new path for the Colorado River to flow around it.
