The Orchard City Trustees want to get a clarification from the Board of County Commissioners on the county policy for providing paving services to municipalities.

The presence of county crews and equipment on two Cedaredge street asphalt overlay projects last week has raised eyebrows in Orchard City. Mayor Ken Volgamore at the trustee work session on Oct. 4 explained the paving work took place on SW 11th Avenue and SW 2nd Avenue Cedaredge.

Trustees agreed at the work session that Orchard City officials need to make a presentation to the full Board of County Commissioners on the matter. Trustees want to get an explanation of the county's policy and ensure that Orchard City is getting access to any street work consideration that Cedaredge might be getting. A meeting with the commissioners will be scheduled.
