The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) has approved funding for ditch companies to defray the cost of engineering services to prepare preliminary project plans and feasibility studies for USBR's 2017 FOA.
Applications are to be submitted to Delta Conservation District with selection review to be coordinated with CWCB and the Gunnison Basin salinity coordinator.
Technical services must be provided by a registered engineer licensed in the State of Colorado. Grantees will be reimbursed a portion of final engineering costs after the entity submits a written report describing the company's plan for FOA participation.
Ditch companies interested in applying for these grants may contact Suzie Bilberry, district manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-399-8194.
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
