With the chair and two directors present and a fourth attending by phone, the Colorado City Metropolitan District Board of Directors managed a quorum plus one as they met Tuesday evening, July 10, 2018, to conduct district business.

After a motion, second and unanimous approval to pay the bills, the board received a thank you note from Valley Backpacks, a nonprofit group that raises fund to purchase backpacks, school supplies, and winter clothing for students in the Greenhorn Valley. After delivering the note, representative Nancy Romaine promised to return to a future board meeting with final results of the groupís fundraising effort. Valley Backpacks will host a wine and cheese event from 2:00-5:00 p.m., Sunday, August 5, 2018, at the Greenhorn Valley Library, 4801 Cibola, Colorado City.

The board also heard public comment from Mike Stewart, 3179 Lunar, regarding a broken hydrant in front of his house. When testing was attempted, the top of the valve sheared off. Based on the condition of that hydrant, Steward has doubts about two additional hydrants in his neighborhood and, consequently, the ability of Rye Fire to effectively fight a fire at his residence. Director Valdez said he would contact Stewart tomorrow by 3:00 p.m. with plan for the repair of the hydrant.
