AZTEC — The Aztec City Commission will select a mayor and mayor pro-tem during its meeting at 6 p.m. on April 14.

The City Commission chooses a mayor and a mayor pro-tem following every election. The current mayor is Victor Snover, who was elected in an unopposed race in 2018 and appointed mayor by the commission on a 3-2 vote shortly afterward. The current mayor pro-tem is Rosalyn Fry.

In March, Aztec voters elected former mayor Michael Padilla Sr. to serve a new term on the City Commission. They also voted for incumbent Austin Randall to serve a second term on the commission.

In addition to appointing a mayor and mayor pro-tem, the City Commission will decide which commissioners will serve on which local boards and committees.

The remainder of the agenda is on a consent agenda, meaning it will be voted on in a single motion unless a commissioner asks to have them removed for discussion.

Topics include an agreement with San Juan Basin Disc Golf Club to operate a city course at Tiger Park. The Aztec City Commission may also vote to terminate an agreement with San Juan County CrimeStoppers. This move comes after the executive director was fired and charged with embezzlement.
