Carbon County Commisioners Casey Hopes, John Jones and Jae Potter conducted their final meeting of 2014 on Dec. 17. Since that time, they have been conducting year-end business preparing for 2015.
Since 2011, Jones has sat on the county commission panel. This past November, a closely contested election for the commissioner/surveyor seat was conducted and Jones lost to Jake Mellor by 21 votes.
Carbon County will conduct its first commission meeting of 2015 on Jan. 7. Mellor will be sworn into office at that time.
