Snowmass calls for applications for vacant council seat

Staff report

The town of Snowmass Village opened an application process on Nov. 18 to fill the fifth seat on Town Council. The vacancy was created when Markey Butler assumed the mayoral position on Nov. 17, which she was elected to earlier this month.

During its regular meeting Nov. 17, the Town Council approved an open application process to take place through Nov. 26. Council candidates will be interviewed publicly during the Dec. 1 regular meeting, which will start at 3 p.m. The appointment is planned for the Dec. 8 Town Council meeting.

“This is an incredible opportunity for engaged and active Snowmass citizens to apply for a council seat,” Butler said. “We expect this open and inclusive community process will present our council with a great applicant pool. We look forward to seeing who throws their hat into the ring.”
