The Colorado City Metropolitan District Board off Directors held its first of two February meetings Tuesday evening, February 11, 2020, at district offices on Bent Brothers Blvd. with a quorum of members present, three, an abbreviated agenda, and one of the shorter meetings in recent memory. Directors Greg Collins and Terry Kraus were absent while Robert Cook, Neil Elliot, and Harry Hochstetler conducted district business.

On a motion by Director Cook, second by Director Elliot, the board voted unanimously to enter an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Pueblo County and, in so doing, paved the way for the district to received $120,000 in Conservation Trust Funds (CTF). Once processed, the funds will be used to purchase golf carts and other equipment for Hollydot Golf course.

In a second unanimous decision, the board approved resolution 07-2020, appointing James W. Naron the designated election official (DEO) for the May, 2020 election and naming Karen Davis and Lavita Vinci as deputy designated election officials.

By a vote of 2-1, the board approved changes to district policy regarding the use of district property and the use of district vehicles, giving District Manager James Eccher the authority to manage and oversee such matters as he supervises district personnel. Cook was unhappy with the policy, drafted by Eccher, suggesting there was no real change from the old policy. Elliot was of the opinion that Eccher has to have the authority to manage district personnel as well as resources and that he is in the best position to make those decisions. As is frequently the case when Cook is opposed to a motion, he called for a “division of the house,” causing the minutes to reflect how members voted individually. The draft policy was approved by a vote of 2-1.
