Steamboat Springs Joe DeAngelo, the former investigator for the 14th Judicial District, remains undecided about whether he will accept Sheriff-elect Garrett Wiggins’ offer to be his undersheriff. DeAngelo said Monday that he will make a decision by Dec. 10.
Wiggins asked the Routt County Board of Commissioners last week to approve a higher starting salary for DeAngelo should he accept the job. The commissioners approved Wiggins’ request to pay DeAngelo $79,539 a year.
DeAngelo is now an investigator for the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, a position he has called a “dream job.”
