Two vacancies in January on City Council

Two vacancies in January on City Council

With Councillor Shannon Bird’s election to the office of State Representative, House District 35, and Councillor Emma Pinter’s election to the office of Adams County Commissioner, District 3, two vacancies will exist on the Westminster City Council when the councillors submit their resignations.  

Per Section 5.7(a) of the Westminster City Charter, the City Council will have 30 days from their respective resignations to fill the vacancies.  

The process will include soliciting applications from qualified and interested applicants and appointing two of them to fill the unexpired terms.

Applications will open just after the new year and will be open for 10 days. Public interviews will take place soon after and the new councillors will be sworn in on Monday, Jan. 28, 2019.

Bird’s term continues until November 2019, and Pinter’s term continues until November 2021.  More information to come.
