A public workshop on the Town of Paonia's 2019 budget will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, prior to the regularly scheduled board meeting at 6:30 p.m. If needed, another workshop is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23.

The Oct. 9 workshop is expected to include a discussion on the town's building department services, which are currently contracted out to the Denver-based Colorado Code Company.

The board has two main considerations, financial and practical, said Mayor Charles Stewart. Town staff has been working on a financial analysis of contracting services versus hiring a town building inspector. With hiring, there are problems with turnover that are a "positive" to contracting the services out, he said. The fact that it's a part-time job "makes it difficult to retain quality people."

Contracting services might also insulate building department policies from town politics, said Stewart.

A public hearing and final review by the board on the proposed budget will be held Nov. 13, and a resolution to adopt the budget, resolution to appropriate sums of money to various funds, and the setting of the mill levy is set for Dec. 11.
