CRAIG — The Moffat County Board of County Commissioners will hold a special meeting Tuesday to discuss the sale of county hospital property and upgrades to the Moffat County Courthouse.

According to an agenda distributed Friday, commissioners plan to meet at 10:45 a.m. at the courthouse, 221 West Victory Way, to first discuss a memorandum of understanding between Moffat County and Colorado Department of Local Affairs, University of Colorado Denver, and Colorado Center for Community Development.

All four organizations will partner to build a handicap-compliant entrance in the Moffat County Courthouse on the entrance facing Victory Way.

“It is estimated that work on this project will be $4,450, and the county is requested to contribute or match a not-to-exceed amount of $2,670 of the project costs to cover the time, travel, expenses, follow-up review, and preparation of the final documents,” the memorandum of understanding states.

The project may also include façade upgrades, ramps compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act, or other amenities to be decided during workshops with commissioners and the public.

The work is expected to be completed by July 25.

Commissioners also plan to hear from Moffat County Attorney Rebecca Tyree regarding the sale of county hospital property as part of resolution 2019-06.

No detailed attachment or description was provided in Friday’s agenda regarding the proposed sale.
