Welcome Councilor Russ Coyle who was seated to fill the vacant position on Angel Fire Village Council, at last night’s meeting. When there is a vacancy on the council it falls to the mayor to appoint and the council to approve/disapprove the candidate. Mr. Coyle had been a candidate in the last election, running for the 2 year term. He earned the next highest votes.
Honoring the voters wishes as being the fair and just way to appoint, Mayor Mixon brought his name before council. It was a unanimous vote by council members. Councilor Coyle will serve in this position thru the end 2021. The next election for this position will be a 4 year position will be in November.
Congratulations to Mayor Pro-Tem Larry Trom. When there is a vacancy in the Mayor Pro-Tem position on the Village Council, the councilors nominate among themselves and vote to fill the position. At last night’s Village Council meeting, Councilor Trom and Councilor Billingsley each nominated themselves for the position. With a vote of 3 to 2 Councilor Trom was elected to the position. He will serve as Mayor Pro-Tem through his term on council.
