The Cedaredge Town Board approved, after it had been installed, a variable message sign at Cedaredge Elementary School. The town, explained administrator Katie Sickles, has no authority to regulate the sign on school district property.
Sickles told trustees at their Sept. 20 regular meeting that the issue was a "gray area" in the town's newly adopted sign code, adding that the board could mount a legal challenge if it chose to. Trustees declined, and instead issued a token approval. The sign is the first one to be installed in town since adoption of the comprehensive sign code revision adopted last month.

• There have been four interviews conducted for the part-time (24 hours per week) code enforcement position.
