The Town of Cedaredge’s utility customers will soon begin receiving  their monthly utility bills on a full-page format.
The change was approved by the town board at its Feb. 19 meeting.

All landowners in the area are able to buy seedling trees from CSU Extension. The seedlings are sold in cooperation with the Colorado State Forest Service.

The U.S. Forest Service is seeking comments on a proposal to treat vegetation surrounding and adjacent to the Mesa Point Communications site on the slopes of the Grand Mesa. The site is within Delta County and located on the Grand Valley Ranger District.

Orchard City Trustee Ken Volgamore, who has been heading up the town board’s fire house committee, reported to his town board colleagues last Wednesday that the town’s pledged portion of the work is finished.
Volgamore said that an estimated 200 or more hours of volunteer labor donated to the project had cut the town’s costs from an originally estimated $40,000 to $32,000.

c01 potCedaredge’s mayor said she will conduct a “straw poll” of trustees on a proposal by Jeff Milstein of Redlands Mesa to establish a marijuana edible product manufacturing business in town.
It is a proposal that if approved would open Cedaredge  to manufacturing products for both medical and recreational marijuana users.
Mayor Pat Means said she would conduct the straw poll of trustees at the Thursday, Feb. 19, regular meeting. If trustees don’t favor Milstein’s concept to begin with, it is reasoned that there is no need to spend time on the lengthy processes of hearings and staff work necessary for the changes Milstein wants to bring to the community.
