With four members present and a fifth attending by phone, the Colorado City Metropolitan Board of Directors met at district offices at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 31, 2018; and, by consensus, expressed support for a moment of silence, as opposed to an invocation, to begin business meetings. A district resident described the discomfort and isolation someone might feel if there was an audible invocation to begin a meeting.

Josh Briggs, Director of Parks and Recreation, reported the district pool will close on August 4 after having provided swimming lessons to 211 persons. Greenhorn Meadows Campground continues to be at capacity on weekends and is frequently occupied during the week as well. Manager Valdez credited Briggs with approximately 4” of rain that has recently fallen in the valley. Briggs just started an adult softball league, consisting of six teams, which is generally accompanied by bad weather.

Marc Anzlovar, Maintenance Director for HollyDot Golf Course, informed the board that good soil, quality water, and an excellent relationship with golfers are the strengths of the facility. He was quick to credit Friends of HollyDot for all the volunteer hours contributed to improving the course. Based on drought conditions, the course lost some 3,100 square feet of turf, forcing the closure of putting and practice greens. The difficult choice was to purchase turf at $1.10 per square foot or use turf from practice greens to make repairs. Course Pro Prim Ivan reported the facility is, year to date, $8,000 ahead of this period last year.
