Fort Collins resident Susan Gutowsky on Tuesday was sworn in to the District 1 Council seat vacated by Bob Overbeck.

Gutowsky, who is retired, serves or has served on numerous boards and committees of non-profit organizations including the Larimer Humane Society, Project Smile, PSD Board of Education, PSD Foundation, Rotary Club of Fort Collins and the Museo de Las Tres Colonias.

Overbeck resigned his Council seat January 1 after being elected Larimer County Assessor in the November general election. City Council interviewed candidates at its regular meeting on January 2 and accepted public feedback on candidates through January 14 before appointing Gutowsky January 15.

Gutowsky will fill the vacancy until a newly elected representative takes office after the April 2019 election to serve the remainder of Overbeck’s four-year term.
