The Montrose City Council is now fully staffed following the appointment of Dave Bowman and Barbara Bynum at its regular meeting on August 1. The appointments were made from a field of 11 qualified applicants.
Dave Bowman resigned his position as the At-Large member to be eligible for appointment to the District II seat recently vacated by the resignation of former District II member Rex Swanson.
Barbara Bynum was appointed to the At-Large seat vacated by Bowman.
The vacancies were filled according to provisions in the City Charter (Article I, Section 11), which empowers the City Council to choose qualified replacement members by majority vote within 30 days of the date that the vacancy occurs.
Both the At-Large and District II seats are up for election in the General Municipal Election in April 2018, and both newly appointed members have expressed their interest in running for another term.
