Staff Reports:                                                Administration

Debra shared that she met with the School District and Mike from Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment regarding future completion of the sewer line from Weld Central to the Town. The school does not have the funds to move forward. It was agreed that the Town would apply for a grant and a State Revolving Fund Loan as a match on behalf of the school. She shared the town may qualify for a disadvantage community resulting in a 0-1% loan and worst case scenario a 2% loan. Mike will do some research and get back with that information. The sewer rate for the school as if they were already a customer was calculated and the monthly total of about $400.00 would not be enough to cover the payment. There was a discussion on charging the school an additional fee to help cover the payment. Debra shared these details will be worked out with Kathleen. Trustee Beach asked how much the total project would be Debra stated between $800,000- $1,000,000.

 

 

Debra shared an update on the street project- most concrete work was completed and the schedule is currently about one week behind. The Water line on Owen would be replaced by the end of the week and they will move to the waterline on Kipp. Milling will occur next week and phone calls have been made to the surrounding residents to keep them informed. She noted the schedule is posted on the Towns Website and Facebook Page.
