ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

When the Lone Tree City Council needed to fill an open seat on the council, members turned to a familiar face.

Sandy Flake was approved on a 3-0 vote with Mitch Swinton abstaining.

Swinton said he could not decide between two good candidates for the open seat, Flake and Joanne Havel.

“I like them both,” Swinton said. “I want to abstain from voting.”

Councilman Ken Barton resigned on Nov. 16 due to health reasons. In recent months, Barton has not been attending council meetings.

Mayor Jonathan Green said that the seat will be on the ballot in the next city election in November 2019.

Green added that voters in Lone Tree may file a petition calling for a special election to fill the seat. The petition must be filed within 14 days of the appointment at City Hall.
