The Board of Directors for Colorado City Metropolitan District meets, by policy, the second and last Tuesday of each month. The second meeting of October scheduled for October 29, 2019 approached in the midst of cold weather, lots of accumulated snow, and hazardous road conditions. Enter social media into the confluence of these events and the entertainment was of high value.

The first social media announcement said the meeting had been canceled. The second announcement informed followers the meeting has been postponed until next Tuesday, November 5, 2019. Living some distance from district offices, I took keen personal interest in meeting status as I’d need to navigate degraded roads to arrive and cover the meeting.

The third notice, really part two of the second announcement, alerted followers an abbreviated meeting would be held during which a couple of time sensitive issues would be considered. As if the confusion of different announcements wasn’t sufficient, two Guardians of Political Procedure (GPP) entered the fray to pontificate, for the uninitiated, the proper procedure for cancelling a scheduled meeting. Social media is, in many ways, entertaining, but a two for one special in the Greenhorn Valley is rare indeed.

According to District Manager James Eccher, the board did, in fact, meet to discuss two time critical items that, weather not withstanding, could not be placed on hold until weather and road conditions improved.

The first item was the disposition of capital credits announced by San Isabel Electric. To a cash strapped district, the issue was $60,578.76 now or several times that total forty years from now. The board voted unanimously for the “cash now” option, 72.5% of which will be devoted to water and sewer enterprise funds.
