WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (AP) - City councilors in Woodland Park are getting close to naming a new mayor.

They’re meeting Tuesday evening to interview five applicants hoping to replace former mayor David Turley. He resigned in July following allegations that he inappropriately touched a 17-year-old boy in a hot tub at his home.

The 65-year-old has maintained his innocence. The Gazette ( ) reports that Turley waived his right to have the evidence against him presented in court Monday and is scheduled to enter a plea in the case on Sept. 22.

Wednesday is the deadline for councilors to pick a new mayor.
