After being postponed for a week, the Town of Rye Board of Trustees met Wednesday, July 18. Trustees Sonny Jackson, Sam Serracino, and Marty Rahl, as well as Mayor Mickey Smith and interim Town Clerk Sherri Beach were all in attendance.

T. J. Vinci, Greg Keasling, and Monte Montez were on hand to discuss the possibility of using the Town of Rye Building as a campus for the District 70 online school students. Although much of the online schoolwork is done via computer, the students are required to spend two hours or more hours at least two days a week on a school campus. District 70 is currently using the Greenhorn Library, but they are rapidly outgrowing that space. The Town of Rye Building could afford more space, and also is located close enough to the elementary school and the high school that students could walk to the main schools to take advantage of advanced courses, PE classes, and music instruction that are lacking with the online program. It was decided Monte Montez will do a code study to determine the cost necessary to bring the Town of Rye Building into compliance with the state and national building codes for schools as a starting point for future discussion.

Robert Cook and Greg Collins from the Colorado City Metro District were there to give their positions on the on-going sewer discussions. Mr. Serracino thanked them for taking the time to address the Board.
