The City of Glenwood Springs is sadly announcing the resignation of Kathryn Trauger from City Council, effective Feb. 1, 2018, after the City Council meeting. Ms. Trauger has served on Council since April 2015 and was appointed Mayor Pro Tem in April 2017. She previously served as Chair of the Planning & Zoning Commission for four years.
During her tenure on Council, she has helped steer the City of Glenwood Springs through the Grand Avenue Bridge project, an update of the development code, the 6th and 7th Street Redevelopment Plans, and the Confluence Redevelopment Plan. She is strongly committed to the quality of life for our residents, fiscal oversight, expanding housing choice, and strengthening the economy of Glenwood Springs.
According to Ms. Trauger, “The biggest loss for me will be the loss of the close working relationship with city staff and my fellow council members. In the three years that I have had the privilege of serving, the city has undergone significant changes, inside and out. We have worked hard to listen to our citizens and have worked diligently to accomplish much. But there is still much to do.”
