With April voting in doubt, Craig City Council moves to approve election agreement

Craig Press staff report

The Craig City Council is looking to approve an emergency ordinance that would make provisions for holding the April 2 municipal election.

According to an announcement Wednesday, Feb. 6, from City Clerk Liz White, City Council will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at Craig City Hall to approve “certain election procedures including using the uniform election code for the conduct of the general municipal election on April 2, 2019.”

The council’s second item of business Thursday will be approval of an intergovernmental agreement between the city of Craig and Moffat County for the April election.

The Craig Press reported in January that the Moffat County Clerk and Recorder’s office would likely not be able to conduct Craig’s April 2 municipal election due to a lack of training, a development that left city officials scrambling to contract election services.
