AVON — Public Access TV 5 and KZYR are hosting a public forum Oct. 8 featuring candidates for this fall Avon Town Council election.

The campaign season is expected to be lively with 10 candidates on the ballot to fill four slots. The event offers an opportunity for the Avon electorate to evaluate candidates in a side-by-side forum. Each candidate will have equal time to answer questions on a variety of topics, which will be presented by moderator Rohn Robbins.

A live radio broadcast of the event will be available on KZYR (97.7 FM). PATV5's live television coverage is available over the Internet at http://www.publicaccess5.org. Both begin at 7 p.m.

Included Topics

Topics will include the candidates' visions for the future, how the town can strengthen its relationship with Avon businesses, neighboring communities and how it can engage with Eagle County and valley organizations.

The forum will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 8 in Avon Town Council chambers at 1 Lake St. in Avon. Elections will be held Nov. 4 in Avon Town Council chambers or by mail. Mail-in ballots will be sent to all registered voters the week of Oct. 14.
