Moffat County commissioner May 13 meeting recap
Craig — At their regular Tuesday meeting, Moffat County commissioners:
• Approved, 3-0, the Adler Exemption proposed by Moffat County Planner Jerry Hoberg. The exemption would allow the Adler family to exempt five acres and their home from their overall property. Now, they can sell that parcel of land separately.
• Approved, 3-0, the Coyner Exemption proposed by Hoberg. The Coyner family wanted to exempt 5 acres from their overall property to sell to the Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club.
• Approved, 3-0, the Ibarra Variance in Shadow Mountain Village. This will allow the homeowner to have a 5 1/2-foot setback in the front of their trailer and in the back.
• Approved, 3-0, the proclamation that May 11 to 18, 2014, is Emergency Medical Services Week and discussed The Memorial Hospital barbecue that will take place Sunday to recognize EMS workers’ efforts.
• Discussed monthly Road and Bridge Department reports, including an update on crack seal projects and the Maybell Bridge construction. Billy Mack, director of the department, said it would try to make sure the bridge would be accessible to emergency vehicles during the month of construction work. Commissioners also approved, 3-0, waiving the bid process for crack seal materials.
• Approved and signed the intergovernmental agreement with the city of Craig to move forward on the Shadow Mountain project that will update the subdivision’s water/sewer lines and roads. They also discussed getting permission from homeowners to work on their property. So far, they have gotten permission from only 40 of the 83 homeowners in the first phase of the project. The county will not be able to update the pipes on homes that do not provide permission, which means those lots will not qualify as residences. The project begins June 2.
