Lance Colby Seeking One More Term As Carstairs Mayor

Lance Colby has served as the Mayor of the town of Carstairs since 2003. Colby has confirmed he will be seeking four more years as Mayor in this fall's municipal election.

Long-time Carstairs Mayor Lance Colby will be running for re-election this fall.
 
 
Colby says he is going for one more term for sure.
 
 
During his time as Mayor, Colby says there has been plenty of growth with the population of Carstairs jumping up from about 2200 up to where it is now at more than 4000.
 
 
Colby says Carstairs has plenty of recreation opportunities for the young families with fields for soccer and baseball, the Splash Park plus the new skateboard park which officially opened this summer.
 
The terms for elected officials were extended from 3 years to 4 in the last municipal election, however Mayor Colby says that hasn't been a big deal for him.
 
 
Priority items for Carstairs town council in the next four years - according to Colby - include a new seniors lodge, a new fire hall, a new middle school, policing, more development on the east side of Highway 2-A, commercial development as well as their lagoons & water reservoir.
