Colo looks to fill Norgart seat

A special election will be held in Colo to fill a vacant City Council seat on Tuesday, Aug. 12. The election will be held from 12 to 8 p.m. at the Colo Community Center (309 Main St.).

The seat up for election was vacated by Tyler Norgart, who resigned after he learned he would be moving out of the city, making him ineligible to remain on the council.

After initially discussing appointments by the remaining members without coming to an agreement, the council decided to hold an election and let the public decide who should represent them. The election will be write-in only, as no resident filed nomination paperwork with the Story County Auditor’s Office before the July 18 deadline.
