The Cedaredge Town Board has scheduled a special work session on Nov. 29 to deal with financial matters.
On the same evening the trustees will conduct a public hearing on the proposed 2013 town budget.
Beginning at 1 p.m. and scheduled to last until 5 p.m. if necessary, the trustees will conduct a session in the Community Center dining hall to discuss and take input on sewer and water rates.
In particular, sewer rates are expected to be a focus of the session. The town is facing an expensive waste water treatment plant construction project that is estimated at $3.5 million or higher for the facility.
The town board will need to evaluate costs associated with that project, and increased costs show up in sewer rates.
According to the town administrator's budget message, "Considerable activities, including public hearings and staff time will be designated to preparation for a waste water treatment plant, including site location, grant requests, design, and rate structure.
Following that session, there will be a budget workshop commencing at 6 p.m.
The town's proposed 2013 budget projects $5.1 million in total spending. Town administrator Katie Sickles said half of that amount will be in capital spending.blog comments powered by Disqus
