Cedaredge has scheduled a community clean up day for Saturday, Sept. 30.
During the Sept. 21 town board meeting it was announced that there will be dumpsters at the town shop from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. to receive at no cost household trash and yard waste only from town residents.
In other business at its Sept. 21 meeting, the Cedaredge Town Board dealt with the following matters:
• Trustees increased the town's utility relief fund from $1,000 to $2,000. The fund helps provide residents with payment relief from high utility bills.
• The board approved an application for a new lighted sign along Grand Mesa Drive for Cedaredge Food Town if several staff recommendations including removal of the present sign are followed.
• Trustees adopted a resolution approving the 2017 amendment to the Cedaredge Master Plan which the town planning commission had approved a week earlier.
• Trustees approved using COLO Trust as an investment vehicle for town funds. The trust offers somewhat higher interest rates than other vehicles for keeping cash reserves, trustees were told.
• The board granted a waiver allowing Codi Nelson to keep four dogs at her home for the time being. The town's limit on dogs is three.
• Trustees approved a re-subdivision final plan for McCalls subdivision.
• Trustees approved minor changes to their agreement with Volunteers of America for use of the Civic (Community) Center dining room facility and kitchen for the senior meals program.
• In the absence of the town clerk and deputy clerk for various reasons from Thursday's meeting, administrative intern Greg Brink was administered the oath of office to serve as deputy town clerk, keep minutes, and take roll call votes.
