Letters of application are being accepted to fill a position on the Colorado Municipal League (CML) Executive Board in the medium category.

The vacancy was created on Dec. 11 by the resignation of Woodland Park City Manager Darrin Tangeman from the board. Tangeman’s last day with Woodland Park was Dec. 11. He has accepted a position to be the town manager of Truro, Mass.

Officials in municipalities with a population between 8,000 and 60,000 (medium category) who wish to be considered for appointment by the CML Executive Board should follow the instructions below.

Under CML bylaws, population figures are based upon population estimates from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). These are the same figures that were used in computing 2021 municipal dues for member municipalities. The CML bylaws state that Executive Board members must be elected or appointed officials of member cities and towns. Any official who desires to be considered for the position must:

  • Submit an application for nomination, in a letter or other written form, no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021.
  • Include an endorsement in writing from the applicant’s city council or board of trustees with the application, which also must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021. (Please note that a city council or board of trustees may endorse the nomination of only one official from the city or town for appointment.).
  • Hold Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, from 9 a.m. to noon, to attend the CML Executive Board meeting, if selected to be recommended to the full board for appointment. The board meeting will be virtual.

Municipal officials meeting the above qualifications will be considered for appointment by the CML Executive Board and be interviewed by the executive officers of the board, who will make a recommendation to the full board for approval on Jan. 22, with the intention to seat the nominee at that meeting. Application materials or any questions about the process should be emailed to CML Executive Director, Kevin Bommer.
