Carbondale’s board of trustees will see a few changes come April 5, with the election of at least two and possibly three new board members.
There are three seats up for grabs in the election, according to town officials.
Trustees Pam Zentmyer and John Hoffmann both are leaving the board due to term limits, meaning they cannot run for re-election.
Trustee Allyn Harvey, however, can run for re-election and apparently will, as he has taken out a nominating petition and is circulating it around town to gather signatures from qualified voters in support of his candidacy.
Nominating petitions have been available at Town Hall since Jan. 5, and are due back in Town Clerk Cathy Derby’s office by 5 p.m. on Jan. 25 in order for candidates to have their names placed on the ballot.
According to town officials, as of Tuesday, Jan. 12, three other local residents had taken out petition forms in hopes of getting onto the town board. The three new names hoping to get on the ballot were Ben Bohmfalk, Michael Durant and Dan Richardson, each of whom has government service in his background either in Carbondale or in Glenwood Springs.
