Orchard City’s water audit report for July gives high marks to the town’s utility crews in their ongoing effort to keep water from leaking from the sprawling pipeline distribution system.
Treated water loss from the system in July is 2.6 percent.

Cedaredge police will have to wait, perhaps six months or longer, for authority from the town trustees to investigate citizen complaints about suspected large pot growing operations in town.
Meeting on Aug. 21, a town board and staff that are deeply divided on the issue stepped back from an initiative to somehow regulate large pot grows.

Following action by the Cedaredge Town Board on Aug. 21, a portion of Cedaredge water customers’ monthly bill payments will help fund a deficit in golf course operations.
The town board’s action will take money from the water fund and buy $39,040 worth of water shares owned in the golf course fund.
