The town trustees learned on Dec. 12 that town crews are ready to help avoid problems from freezing conditions on the Alfalfa Ditch water course, which is known to some as Deer Creek.
Public works Director Dave Smith explained the town is willing to help with keeping the ditch from freezing up completely by aiding in ice breaking operations.
The possibility of water backing onto residential property at the Cedaredge Golf Course is one the town wants to avoid.
In other business at their Dec. 12 regular meeting, the Cedaredge trustees dealt with the following matters:
• Smith noted that pedestrian benches and other accouterments of the new Main Street improvements are scheduled to be installed soon.
• Trustees approved having the Delta County Elections Department conduct the April 1, 2014, municipal election by mail ballot. The town will pay an estimated $2,800 for the county's services.
• Police chief Dan Sanders reported that two dogs had been adopted from the Friends of Cedaredge Animal Control shelter.
• The sales tax report for revenues was "flat" for the year.
• Trustees were told that a $200,000 planning and design grant has been applied for on the new sewer plant project. The town board has yet to be presented with the promised "peer review" report on the final sewer plant siting plan as was promised by engineers.
Following a year of turmoil evaluating more than a dozen different sites for the new sewer plant, it was found by engineers that a previously rejected option of locating on town-owned property at the present lagoon site was about as expensive as several other options presented. The final engineers' report distributed to the town board at its October meeting did not include an independent peer review of the work.
• Golf pro Larry Murphy reported that "two shirts and a pair of golf shoes" were sold in the pro shop.
• Trustees adopted the 2014 revision to the town's capital improvements plan.blog comments powered by Disqus
