A photoprint of the pioneer Wetterich Family, shown in the early days of the Cedaredge community, with produce from an apple harvest will be the official poster for AppleFest this year. The print was entered by Sue Pierce.
Cedaredge town trustees, on Aug. 21, approved use of a mediator in Cedaredge’s water dispute with the Cedaredge Cemetery District. There was no requirement in the action that either party participate in mediation.
Trustee Ray Hanson was appointed as the town’s representative in any mediation that may take place.
Trustees also “rescinded” a 2013 policy that charges the cemetery district $75 for each acre foot of water it uses.
Though not required to do so by any regulation, a generous Cedaredge Town Board has voted to pay its planning commission members.
Cedaredge’s home rule charter allows it to pay planning commission members, a practice prohibited for statutory towns until July 1 when a new state law allowing compensation took effect.
Taking the new law as an opportunity to establish pay for its own PC members under the home rule charter provisions, the trustees approved the pay at their Aug. 21 meeting.
