Carbondale needs a new trustee; six applied before last Friday’s deadline.

There’s a freelance web designer, employees for both the city of Aspen and the Aspen Art Museum and a retired social worker.


The applicants are: Colette Armstrong, Hank Van Berlo, Jade Wimberly, Julia Farwell, Luis Yllanes and Niki Delson.


The position opened when Katrina Byars resigned at the end of June to relocate to Glenwood Springs.


At Tuesday’s meeting, trustees will decide which applicants they’ll interview, which will happen sometime in August. The board needs a seventh trustee by Aug. 26. Whoever is picked will serve until April 2018.
