Summer time and the third quarter brought marijuana busts galore. In two different fields, Pueblo County Sheriff’s Narcotics Division found 7,400 marijuana plants on the first day of July, to start the quarter. The grow was in the San Isabel National Forest near the Town of Rye. This was the fifth bust in as many years in the national forest. Estimated street value of the most recent bust was over $7 million. Since 2012, the Pueblo County Sheriff has eradicated 27,644 marijuana plants in the area.

Sam Denardo of Denardo, Ross, and Garren, Pueblo, reviewed the 2016 audit for the Colorado City Metro District on July 11, and praised the audit. “We had a very good year,” summarized Denardo to about two dozen citizens and the CCMD Board of Directors. Donna Pickman, Finance Manager for the last nine years, was given verbal praise for her work on the financial health of the district. Pickman had accepted a position in Newton, Kansas and would be leaving the district.
