Candidates elected in November to Grant County offices will be sworn in at 10 a.m. Dec. 30 upstairs in the circuit courtroom at the Grant County Courthouse in Canyon City.

The ceremony will include David Thunell, assessor; Jim Hamsher, county commissioner; Mike Springer, surveyor; Julie Ellison, treasurer; and Glenn Palmer, sheriff.

Grant County Human Resource Manager Laurie Wright said the officers must be sworn in by Jan. 2, but all county offices will be closed Jan. 2 in observance of New Year’s Day — as well as Dec. 26 for Christmas.
