School superintendent Caryn Gibson reports that a bid on the old City Market building was declined.
As detailed in the Dec. 28 edition of the Delta County Independent, the site was eyed for Delta-Montrose Technical College expansion, a business incubator and Delta County Economic Development offices.
"The owners of the site came back with a high counteroffer, but it is not feasible for the tech college to purchase the site, remodel and make all the upgrades at this time," Gibson said. "The technical college is pursuing other sites or can add to the current facility."
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.
