On Thursday, April 19, after swearing in newly elected Cedaredge trustees Ken Simpson, Dayton Myers, Jr., Ray Hanson and Nancy Sturgill, along with mayor Pat Means, the town council worked quickly through its agenda.
Under its "action" agenda, the trustees:
• Approved a renewal application for a hotel and restaurant liquor license from Gayle Guadarrama and Curtis Smelser for the Wildfire Pizzeria and Wine Bar;
• Appointed the officers authorized to conduct business for the Town of Cedaredge — Gene Welch, mayor pro-tem; Nancy Sturgill, treasurer; Kathleen Sickles, town administrator; Darlyn Novakovich, town clerk; Patricia Luan, deputy town clerk; Tammy Francis, finance director; Robert Yant, police chief; Steven K. Harper, town attorney; Millard Fairlamb, municipal court judge; and Michael Schottelkotte, alternate municipal court judge;
• Designation of the east window of the Town Hall as the official posting place for notices and agendas; and
• Adopted a resolution to appropriate additional sums of money to defray expenses in excess of amounts budgeted for the water fund (by $10,000), the golf course fund (by $4,000) and the trust fund (by $1,177).
The trustees also decided to increase what they are willing to pay a grant writer from $1,000 to $7,000, in order to realistically solicit proposals for a grant writer for the Main Street Improvement Project.
Mayor Pat Means read two proclamations, one designating May 2 as Arbor Day for the Town of Cedaredge and one designating April as "Child Abuse Prevention Month" for the town. In celebration in Arbor Day, fifth grade students from Hunsicker Elementary School will be planting trees in the lot just east of the Cedaredge Public Library. This is the 18th year Cedaredge has earned the title "Tree City USA."
Nelson Cederberg and Michael Meskel were both recognized for their years of service and dedication to the citizens of Cedaredge as members of the Cedaredge Board of Trustees and Mary Treder was recognized for her participation as a member of the Planning Commission.blog comments powered by Disqus
