Oak Creek to swear in new board

Alexis DeLaCruz

Oak Creek’s new Town Board takes office tonight.

During the April 4 municipal election, Dave Fisher and Angie Kralj KenCairn were elected to the Town Board, and incumbents J. Elliott and John Crawford were re-elected. Incumbent Mayor Kathy “Cargo” Rodeman also was re-elected.

The old Town Board will meet and take care of one item of business. Then, the new board members will be sworn in.

The new Town Board then will tackle the rest of the night’s agenda, which includes reviewing two letters of interest for seats on the Oak Creek Planning Commission and approving the Oak Creek Fire Protection District’s lease with the town of Oak Creek.

In other business, the Town Board is scheduled to:

Hear from speakers including David Bonfiglio and Karen Tussey. Bonfiglio is scheduled to ask the town for a special-use permit to sell beer at the annual Taste of South Routt, to seek support for the South Routt Medical Center and to send two people to a Main Street U.S.A. meeting in Steamboat Springs. Tussey is scheduled to speak about the South Routt Economic Develop–ment Council.
