The mayor has chosen his favored applicant for the Housing Authority of Colorado Springs board.
Brian Colvert is a financial advisor who recently served on the Urban Renewal Authority board. He will need to be confirmed by City Council before taking his seat.
Although City Council generally appoints members to boards and commissions, there are a few exceptions, including the Housing Authority board and the Urban Renewal board. Those positions are filled by mayoral appointments who are confirmed by City Council, as state law dictates.
