Town Council sets ballot language for elected Mayor special election. An ordinance setting the ballot question for a November special election was approved by Town Council at its Aug. 15 meeting.
The special mail in ballot election has been set for Tuesday, Nov. 7
. The ballot question will read:
TOWN OF CASTLE ROCK BALLOT QUESTION --- CASTLE ROCK CHARTER AMENDMENT
SHALL THE TOWN OF CASTLE ROCK HOME RULE CHARTER BE AMENDED TO PROVIDE THAT THE TOWN COUNCIL, THE SEVEN-MEMBER GOVERNING BODY OF THE TOWN, CONSIST OF A MAYOR ELECTED BY ALL OF THE ELECTORS OF THE TOWN FOR A FOUR-YEAR TERM, WITH THE MAYOR?S SERVICE LIMITED TO TWO FOUR-YEAR TERMS, AND SIX COUNCILMEMBERS WHO ARE ELECTED FOR FOUR-YEAR TERMS BY THE ELECTORS OF THE DISTRICT WHERE EACH COUNCILMEMBER RESIDES?
In Douglas County, all elections are coordinated by mail ballot. For this Town of Castle Rock special election, ballots will be mailed Monday, Oct. 16. Completed ballots must be returned by 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 7. Voters should return their ballots by mail, or to one of two locations: Town Hall (100 N. Wilcox St.) or Douglas County Elections (125 Stephanie Place).
Currently, Town Council is made up of seven Councilmembers including a Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem. Each Councilmember is elected to represent a district. The Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem are appointed by Town Council. The Mayor presides over Town Council meetings as chairperson, but has the same voting power and level of authority as the other Councilmembers.
If passed, this Charter amendment would change the Town Charter to include six Town Councilmembers and a Townwide elected Mayor. Learn more about the special election, and fill out the feedback form, at CRgov.com/2017SpecialElection.
