Berthoud will soon lose not one, but two, of its staff members. On Wednesday, Public Works Director Tony Huerta announced he would be resigning from his position, with his last day coming Tuesday, June 30. In his resignation later, Huerta said that while he would have liked to stay onboard through the completion of the roundabout project on east Highway 56, his new position “was too great to turn down.”
The following day, Town Administrator Jim White officially tendered his resignation as of July 20 after the Town of Minturn’s city council officially approved White’s contract. White had notified trustees earlier in the month that he was in the process of negotiating a contract with the Vail Valley town.
In his letter to the Board of Trustees, White said he appreciated the experience provided in serving the residents of Berthoud and the surrounding area. White will begin his new position in Minturn on July 30.
Berthoud trustees will now begin the process of finding replacements for both positions, a process that could take several weeks or even months to complete.
