Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) – Filling the seats on both city council and the school board that were left empty by the late Harry Butler is proving to be difficult.

In an effort to fill his District C school board seat 6 people had the chance to speak in front of the school board for a few minutes on Tuesday night.

The members interviewed each applicant asking them questions about Senate Bill 191 and 213, and if they would run for the board in 3 months. By the end of the night, the board could not come to a decision.

Now the school board president, Greg Mikolai, will have the duty of picking the appointee.

"We talked about three different candidates, but I think, and in some respects four but I think, out of fairness we need to make this open to all six," says Greg Mikolai.

The school board had 60 days to fill the school board seat. That 60 day period comes to an end on Wednesday. This puts the decision in the hands of the school board president.
