Berthoud sets special election for August 9

By Surveyor Staff

The Town of Berthoud will hold a special municipal election on Aug. 9 to select a new mayor.

Town trustees unanimously voted at their April 26 meeting to hold a special election to fill the position vacated by mayor-elect Pete Cowdin, who resigned the position before taking the oath of office on April 12.

Cowdin ran unopposed for the position. The new mayor will serve for a 20-month term, ending April 2018.

Nomination petitions will be available at Berthoud Town Hall May 10-27 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Petitions must be returned by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 27, due to the Memorial Day holiday.
