Spring is right around the corner, and for Carbondale that can only mean one thing: municipal elections.

If you’re interested in serving on the Carbondale Board of Trustees, you can pick up your nomination petitions starting today for the April 1 elections.

Three trustees and the mayor’s seat are up for election on April 1. They currently are held by Mayor Stacey Bernot and Trustees John Foulkrod, Frosty Merriott and Elizabeth Murphy. There are no ballot questions. Nomination petitions must have 25 valid signatures and be turned in to the clerk by Feb. 20.

The election is a mail-ballot election and is being run by Garfield County. For more information, call the town clerk at 970-510-1206.

“I know what it means to be told to move.”
Mike Scanlon
Basalt town manager

All those seeking election must be at least 18 years of age, one-year residents of Carbondale and registered voters.
