Mayor Pat Means reported at the November town council meeting that an effort to reorganize the town's historic preservation board will take place in December.
The last two meetings of the board have failed to attract a quorum of members, and one member recently resigned.
The historic preservation board was reactivated this year after several years of dormancy. A volunteer staff member who was "the driving force" for the revitalized historic preservation board has moved away, Means reported.
In other business at its Nov. 15 regular meeting, the Cedaredge town board dealt with the following matters:
• Cedaredge police department reported there has been an increased number of traffic accidents involving deer as the animals begin seasonal herd movements.
• Residents are advised to keep doors locked, including doors of vehicles parked in driveways, to prevent burglaries. Some thefts from unlocked vehicles have occurred in the commercial and residential areas of town recently, police reported.
• Dec. 7 will be the date of the annual dinner at the golf course, reported golf pro Larry Murphy. The event is open to the public, not just golfers, he said. Sign-ups are being taken at the pro shop.
• The trustees were introduced to Travis Russell, the new code enforcement officer. He comes to the town from the Las Animas County Sheriff's Department where he served as a patrol sergeant.
• The trustees approved two lease agreements with homeowners in the Westador subdivision.
• The public works department reported completed installation of about 300 feet of new water line in Westador. Crews tried to keep dust suppressed with a "small rented water tank and pump" during the construction work. The town lacks a means of its own for applying mag-chlor or water spray to control dust, the department reports.
Rocks were another problem during the Westador work. "It can take over an hour to remove a rock without damaging other utilities. Some boulders are making out the capabilities of the town's backhoe," and hydraulic lines have been blown out, the report states.
Road rebuilding is scheduled next in the Westador neighborhood.blog comments powered by Disqus
