Linda Balough/Park County Correspondent

PARK COUNTY – Alma and Fairplay will close nominations for their town board elections by the close of business Friday.

All seven of the Alma Town Board seats are open, while the Fairplay Board of Trustees has three openings.

To self-nominate or to be nominated, a candidate must have resided in the town for one year and must be a registered voter.

Residents of the towns can pick up nomination forms at the town halls. The forms must be signed by a witness. The election is scheduled for April 6.

Alma also will have two ballot questions. The first is whether to abolish term limits for the mayor and board members.

The second is whether the mayor’s term should be for four years instead of the current two.

For information, call the town clerks offices. At Alma, the number is (719) 836-2712; in Fairplay it is (719) 836-2622.
