Staff report

Carbondale and Rural Fire Protect District has two new faces on its board: ordinance officer Gretchen Stock-Bell and former mayor Michael Hassig, who will also serve as the new secretary/treasurer. The pair were chosen from among three applicants to fill the seats left open by Carl Smith and Lou Eller, both of whom have moved out of the district. 
Board President and Police Chief Gene Schilling lauded the selections as bringing a good balance of experience with the fire district and an outside perspective. Both appointees will be subject to a formal election in May alongside Mike Kennedy and Schilling himself — who said he does not intend to run for reelection after at least 25 years on the board.
