MONTROSE - Montrose City Manager Bill Bell was elected to the Colorado Municipal League Executive Board by municipal officials from around the state who gathered at the 90th Annual CML Conference in Breckenridge last month.
Bell was one of four new board members to be elected at the conference. Nine incumbents were reelected to the 19-member board.
“City Manager Bill Bell’s election to the CML Board is extremely valuable, not only to the City of Montrose, but also to the Western Slope,” said Gail Marvel, former Montrose City Council member and two-term CML Executive Board member. “His position on the Board gives us a continued voice in municipal government with a focus on legislative issues at the state level. Being elected to CML is certainly a compliment to Mr. Bell, and his election also shows that the Montrose community is well respected and supported by other municipalities around the State.”
The CML Executive Board is comprised of elected officials and key municipal staff members who are elected by the membership at an annual business meeting. The Board is responsible for overall finances, management and policy affairs of the League. CML is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization established in 1923 and represents the interests of 263 cities and towns.
