Park board seats decided

Friday, November 19, 2021

There were no candidates for two open Park Board seats in Alta on the November ballots, leaving the positions to be determined from a large number of write-in ballots canvassed last week.

Neal Peterson received 16 write-in votes, and incumbent Randy Erickson eight. There was a scattering of 59 other write-ins.

Alta is the only area community that elected park board members. The county commissioner of elections has suggested to the city council that the positions be made by appointment in the future.
