City of Glenwood Springs

Ballots for Glenwood Springs’ April election are in the mail Monday. Nearly half the seats on City Council are up for grabs, including the mayor’s seat.

Two blocks of 7th Street in Glenwood Springs close to traffic on Monday for construction and won’t reopen until July 4. The area, however, will remain open to pedestrians. It’s part of an effort to spruce up downtown.

Inspectors say the 27th Street Bridge in Glenwood Springs is one of the worst in the state. It’s not dangerous, but it does need a replacement, which crews will start work on in 2019.

Valley Roundup for Aug. 18, 2017

Glenwood Springs has owned the Rosebud Cemetery since 1929, and its end could be near. The City Council discussed the issue Thursday during a work session.
