The Town of Cedaredge is hoping to set up an "adopt-a-garden" program that will enlist volunteers to care for town landscaping.
During its regular Nov. 15 meeting, the Cedaredge Town Board gave its approval for the town staff to draw up plans for the "adopt-a-garden" program.
The idea aims at getting individuals and community groups to do volunteer maintenance work on town landscape locations saving taxpayer money.
In other business during its regular November meeting, the Cedaredge trustees dealt with the following:
• Trustees approved a sign permit for the First Baptist Church.
• Town Administrator Katie Sickles reported that three applications had been received for police department positions. The town will begin interviewing for the open sergeant's position first.
• Trustees approved two appointments to the tree board. They are Bob Eckles and Beth Atkinson.
• Trustees approved final edits on the town's request for proposals for management of the golf club restaurant. One proposal had already been submitted, staff reported, but no action was taken on it.
• The town board approved paying either $414 or $622 as the town's share of matching funds for a regional, multi-agency planning grant proposal looking at expanded broadband service. The grant proposal, being spearheaded by Delta County Economic Development and the City of Delta, will be for either $100,000 or $150,000. Grant money from the Department of Local Affairs is being sought.
• Town board approved submission of a grant request for $200,000 from the Department of Local Affairs to do planning and engineering on the town's proposed sewer treatment plant.blog comments powered by Disqus
