Delta city manager David Torgler reports that letters have been mailed to property owners in a large section of the city that could geographically fall within a yet-to-be-determined project area for the Delta Urban Renewal Authority. The letters inform property owners of a pending conditions survey, the first step in determining if the property should be contained within project boundaries. Whether the property ends up within the project area or not, there will be no effect on property values "or anything else," Torgler said. Once boundaries have been established, the project area can not be enlarged so the city is taking a broad approach.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
