Steamboat Springs School District seeks candidates for open School Board seat


— The Steamboat Springs School District still is waiting to receive its first letter of interest for an open seat on its School Board.

The board is seeking candidates to replace former District 2 member Wayne Lemley, who resigned last month to tend to personal matters.

The board will accept letters until Jan. 7 from interested candidates who reside in District 2 and then conduct public interviews of the candidates no later than Jan. 16.

District 2 covers the southern part of the school district including voting Precincts 16, 17 and 18, but it does not include the Tree Haus neighborhood.

Applicants can call the district office at 970-879-1530 with questions about applying for the position or to determine whether they reside within the boundary.

To reach Scott Franz, call 970-871-4210 or email
