2018 Election Results

Mayor and Council Members Re-elected 

More than 1400 Snowmass Village registered voters participated in the 2018 general election, the most ever in a mid-term election. Here are the Town results:  

Mayor & Town Council Election
Congratulations to Mayor Markey Butler and Councilmen Bill Madsen and Bob Sirkus for being re-elected to their respective positions on the Town Council. All three ran unopposed in the November election.

Marijuana Sales Tax
Votes also overwhelmingly approved a new sales tax 70% in favor compared to 30% opposed on the potential sale of marijuana products in Snowmass Village. The results authorizes the Town to implement an additional tax of 5% on marijuana products, should they be permitted to be sold in Snowmass Village. The Town estimates that a 5% tax could generate anywhere from $100,000 - $300,000 in additional revenue.

Free Sharps Disposal Containers Available 

The Valley Resource Management Team, made up of county and municipal governments throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, have teamed up to begin offering a sharps disposal program. Sharps is a medical term for devices with sharp points or edges that can puncture or cut skin (e.g. needles, syringes, lansets, etc.) The new program provides FDA approved containers to mail back used sharps safely, and keep them out of solid waste stream where they can pose a hazard to solid waste workers, custodial staff, and children. 

Please help us by disposing of your sharps safely with a FREE mail back kit (postage required). Pick up a disposal container at any of our pick up locations. Find the one nearest you by following the link below.

Cow Elk

Wildlife Trail Closures Begin Dec. 1

Respect wildlife. Respect seasonal closures.

Elk herds have been spotted in the Horse Ranch area this week, and local herds are moving into their winter ranges for the season. Local winter ranges include the North Mesa and Sky Mountain Park. Both areas provide critical food sources for wildlife during the hardest times of the year. North Rim Trail, Seven Star Trail, and Sky Mountain Park trails will be closed beginning December 1 to protect this winter range and provide a peaceful place for wildlife to negotiate winter conditions. These trails will reopen on May 16.

Winter Season Closures:

  • Rim Trail North, including the North Mesa Equestrian Trail: December 1 - May 16
  • Sky Mountain Park trails: December 1 - May 16
  • Seven Star Trail: December 1 - May 16
The south portion of the Rim Trail is open year-round. 

Trail closures are strictly enforced by the Town's Animal Services Division, in partnership with Colorado Parks & Wildlife, and there is a zero tolerance policy for trail closure violations. Fines can reach up to $5,000. Wildlife monitoring cameras are in use in closed areas. Thank you for your understanding and respect of wildlife.
