New Glenwood city councilors sworn in today

Staff Report

Two newly elected Glenwood Springs City Council members will be officially sworn in at tonight’s regular council meeting.

Kathryn Trauger was elected April 7 to the At-large council seat, while Steve Davis was the choice to take the Ward 1 seat.

They will be sworn in shortly after the start of tonight’s meeting along with re-elected Councilmen Todd Leahy and Mike Gamba from Wards 3 and 4, who were unopposed in the recent municipal election. The meeting is set for 6 p.m. at City Hall on West Eighth Street.

There will also be a time for outgoing council members Dave Sturges and Ted Edmonds to offer a few parting words.

The first order of business for the new seven-member City Council will be to appoint a mayor and mayor pro-tem to serve for the next two years. The mayor for the past two years has been Ward 5 Councilman Leo McKinney.

Also on the agenda will be a conceptual review for a proposed new building and greenhouses at 2150 Devereux Road to support a new retail marijuana cultivation and sales operation. Proponents Michael Gurtman, Spencer Schiffer and Richard Rosin are expected to submit a formal development application to the city in the coming weeks.
