Steamboat Springs The Hayden Town Council named Steamboat Springs municipal court prosecutor Colette Byrne-Erickson as its top choice to fill Hayden’s part-time municipal court judge position. Byrne-Erickson has served as Steamboat’s municipal court prosecutor since 1993 and will replace municipal court Judge Steve Frasier, who retired in April after serving in Hayden for 14 years.
Byrne-Erickson will work in Hayden for two days
a month and will be responsible for enforcing the ordinances and traffic codes of the town.
“She’s well qualified and seems to have a good potential to be a great judge for us,” Town Manager David Torgler said Thursday.
Byrne-Erickson will be sworn in at the Town Council’s next meeting.
