To Vote Or Not To Vote

In an evening that was described as “mostly house keeping” by Town Clerk Deb Anthony, the Board of Trustees (BOT) put on a unified front Tuesday night (Monday was the New Year’s holiday) and passed every measure, except one, by a unanimous 7 – 0 vote.

The consent agenda, consisting of the December 19 meeting minutes, and the December accounts payable, was passed without any discussion. Also passed were an ordinance to transfer a water share of the Colorado Big Thompson Water Project (acquired by the Town as a result of the Whipp annexation last year), from “temporary” to “permanent” status, and a resolution designating the Lyons Recorder as the “paper of record” for legal notices (this passed 6 – 0, when Mayor Julie Van Domelen recused herself [see disclaimer above] from the discussion and vote, citing a conflict of interest).
