Moffat County Commissioner May 20 meeting recap

Erin Fenner

At their regular Tuesday meeting Moffat County Commissioners:

• Approved 2-0 (County Commissioner John Kinkaid was not present) the lowest bid, at $13,491 for the Loudy-Simpson Park electronic sign. The sign will be 4.5 feet by 7.5 feet.

• Approved 2-0 Ground Engineering — a company that evaluates the quality of materials used for the construction — to take on the Shadow Mountain Village project geotech procedure.

• Approved 2-0 a letter for the Gateway South Transmission Line, recommending the line pass through the Tuttle Easement.

• Approved 2-0 a letter for Gov. John Hickenlooper recommending he veto Senate Bill 14-023, a bill that would remove the “use it or lose it” disincentive on water rights.

• Discussed updates on the Department of Social Services with Kerri Klein, director of the department. There was one less foster care placement than the previous month, but everything else was busier, Klein said. The budget was tight, she said.

• Discussed the property donated to the county by Wells Fargo at 1161 Aspen Ave. Two non-profits, Moffat County Fuller Center and Love INC, drafted proposals for the property. County Commissioner Chuck Grobe suggested the two organizations make a presentation to the BOCC at the next meeting to give the commissioners time to think about the proposal and an opportunity to hear about the ideas from the non-profits.
