Orchard City has scheduled an hour-long, open house public meeting to discuss the single issue of a town roads maintenance program and its funding.
The session is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. at Orchard City Town Hall.
Trustees discussing the meeting format during their Oct. 4 work session decided that it would be a single-issue session devoted to roads. Other similar public sessions devoted to different aspects of the town's search for new revenue were also discussed as future possibilities.
In other issues discussed during the work session, trustees considered the following matters:
• The ambulance district wants an official letter of support from the town for the district's tax increase proposal.
• Trustees were given a document spelling out rules and procedures for public meetings. Trustees will discuss the document further at their November work session.
The seventh annual Eckert Crane Days, the annual viewing of the sandhill cranes migrating north from New Mexico through Colorado's West Slope, will be March 16-18. Representatives from the Black Canyon Chapter of the Audubon Society (BCAS) will be at the viewing site east of Eckert at Fruitgrowers Reservoir, 9 to 11 a.m. each day, to answer questions and provide binoculars and spotting scopes.
