The Hotchkiss Town Council met twice last week. It met for a work session on Tuesday, April 9, to discuss possible amendments to the town's mobile home and travel trailer regulations.
Last Thursday, Hotchkiss trustees dug into the 2019 budget and opened discussions on revisions to the town's mobile home regulations.
The town anticipates modest increases in revenues from property tax and specific ownership tax, but mineral leasing and severance taxes continue to drop off.
Hotchkiss council held a public discussion and a first reading of the latest draft of the Mobile Home and Travel Homes Regulations at the Nov. 10 public meeting. After almost two years of dialogue and revisions, one issue, a 25-year age limit on trailers imported into town limits, is the final objection held by mobile home and mobile home park owners and some members of council.
The Hotchkiss Planning Commission will schedule at least one more public comment session after hearing numerous complaints regarding proposed changes to the town's "Mobile Home and Travel Home Regulations" ordinance during a hearing at the Jan. 26 planning meeting.
The main concern expressed by the 14 who spoke is the perceived unfairness of the regulations, which were viewed as potentially cost prohibitive to mobile home owners and renters.
