Colorado: Castle Rock looks to change reimbursement policy for recalls

The town council is looking to approve an ordinance allowing council members who survive recalls reimbursement for expenses. Castle Rock had a recall vote against Mayor Paul Donahue in July, which he survived. Councilmember Renee Valentine was set to face a recall vote in November, but petitioners provided a written requests to withdraw the petitions.

The council would have to approve the reimbursement. Note that the reimbursement policy has not worked well in other jurisdictions. A number of officials have declined to seek reimbursement in California because it looked bad politically.
