Call for nominations for Eagle County Paramedic Services board

Eagle County Paramedic Services is seeking nominations for its 2023 Board of Directors election. There are two seats open for election. After the election, these positions will fill four-year terms to begin in May 2023 and end in May 2027. 

The Eagle County Paramedic Services Board of Directors has five board members. Each newly-elected member will serve a four-year term. Interested candidates must be an “eligible elector” which is defined as a registered voter of Colorado and either a resident of the district or the owner (or the spouse or civil union partner of the owner) of taxable real or personal property situated in the district. A mobile or manufactured home qualifies as “real property,” and a person who is under contract to purchase taxable property and is obligated to pay the taxes prior to closing shall be considered an “owner.” Director qualifications must be met at the time of the execution of the self-nomination form and must be maintained in order to remain qualified as a board member. Property that is owned by a legal entity such as a corporation, LLC, partnership or trust does not qualify a person as an eligible elector on the basis of property ownership. 

Interested candidates can request an information packet, which includes information about the district and position, from the Eagle County Paramedic Services office. Please contact the Eagle County Paramedic Services’ Designated Election Official at to learn more or to request an information packet. 

To indicate your interest, please fill out a self-nomination form and return it to by 5 p.m. on Feb. 24, 2023.
