The Grand County Council has a new chairman.

Lynn Jackson was appointed to the position by his fellow Grand County Council members during the council’s first meeting of the new year on Jan. 7.

“It’s your meeting now,” former chairman Gene Ciarus said, just before he shifted the chairman’s plaque over to Jackson.

Council member Elizabeth Tubbs will become the board’s vice chairwoman, thanks in part to a vote of confidence from council member Ken Ballantyne.

Council member Jim Nyland nominated Ballantyne for the vice-chairman position, but Ballantyne joined Ciarus, Jackson and Patricia Holyoak in support of Tubbs.
