Glenwood Springs City Council seat, ballot question decided today
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Today is the last day for city of Glenwood Springs voters to cast ballots in the election for an at-large City Council seat and one ballot question.
As of Monday afternoon, 1,274 of the 4,425 ballots that were mailed to registered active city voters in mid-March had been completed and returned, according to City Clerk Robin Unsworth.
That represents an approximately 29 percent turnout with one day left to return ballots. Completed ballots may still be dropped off at Glenwood Springs City Hall, 101 W. Eighth St., until 7 p.m. today.
City voters are asked to decide the lone contested race for an at-large City Council seat, between incumbent Stephen Bershenyi and challenger Lyle Beattie.
Also on the ballot is a single question, asking voter permission for the city to sell two parcels of land near the corner of Seventh Street and Colorado Avenue.
Garfield County has expressed interest in buying the parcels to combine with adjacent county-owned land for expanded parking. Voter approval would give the city permission to negotiate with the county.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.

After the planning and zoning commission unanimously denied ANB Bank’s proposal to construct a new facility in the city’s 900 block, the Glenwood Springs City Council will hear the banks appeal case Thursday at its regularly scheduled meeting.
