Preliminary results are in; ballot question regarding Townwide Mayor passes

News-Town1

The citizen-initiated effort seeking to change language in the Town Charter regarding how the Mayor is selected has passed, according to initial results.

Unofficial results for Castle Rock’s special election have been posted to the Douglas County website, DouglasVotes.com.

Ballot question: 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?

Yes - 10,369 (67.41 percent)
No -     5,012 (32.59 percent)

The above results are preliminary and must still be finalized by the County.

Per State Statue, Town Council was required to set the ballot language and call a special election after a sufficient number of valid registered-voter signatures were submitted to the Town Clerk’s office.

Now that the ballot question has passed, Town Council will develop a plan for how to move forward with the Charter amendment. That process will be discussed at the next Town Council meeting, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St.

Council typically meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Council will schedule special meetings as necessary, or reschedule meetings due to holidays. To get the full, detailed agenda, visit CRgov.com/agendas and click “view Council agenda” on the right.
