According to the Town of Paonia website, for the next two weeks Paonia residents can expect street closures to allow for scheduled repairs to in-town railroad crossings. The first phase will affect Lamborn Drive and North Fork Avenue, the second phase involves Second Street between Oak and Delta avenues, and the third phase will affect Third Street.
The clock is ticking. The Delta Urban Renewal Authority (DURA) has 120 days to reach agreement with the taxing entities it's asking to help fund a gateway project near the intersection of Highways 50 and 92. Half that time has elapsed, and there is no Plan B, city manager David Torgler emphasized during a meeting with taxing entities Monday.
