EPA to let town hear about its emergency response plan
Town public works director Rodney Due said the Environmental Protection Agency plans to give the council a presentation in May about its emergency response plan as it relates to its work on the old Standard Mine this summer. The 30-minute presentation will be scheduled for the May 16 council meeting.
Yerman stuff: BLM presentation / roundabout / affordable lots
Town planner Michael Yerman said the Bureau of Land Management will update the Town Council on summer backcountry issues from the BLM perspective on May 2 at 6 p.m. They will talk about insights and future efforts geared toward the Oh Be Joyful campground.
Yerman said he is sort of on the roundabout road show circuit. He has made presentations to the school and plans to update the county commissioners and Mt. Crested Butte Town Council about the idea. He wants to get on the Colorado Department of Transportation grant list. And he said the town will be listing six to eight affordable lots in blocks 79 and 80 starting next week; they will be posted on the town website. Sales of those lots should help replenish the affordable housing fund in the town budget.
