District manager, Jim Eccher, had good news to share with the Colorado City Metropolitan District(CCMD) Board at the Tuesday, June 9th,2020 meeting with a report that usage and revenue were increased for both the golf course and the Greenhorn Meadows Campground. Citing the new website for the campground as an "amazing asset", Eccher reported $8280 for campground reservations booked in May. Revenue for May alone was $4940, and as of June 4th there were 147 reservations booked for June and 231 reservations booked for July. A softball scrimmage was held on June 8 at the Greenhorn Meadows ball field to see how hard social distancing and sanitizing restrictions were to cope with.

Eccher reported that Hollydot golf course had a great month, with many out-of-towners coming in for a lot of open play. There have been four new memberships which makes a total of seventy-six members for the year. The golf course showed considerable increase from 2019 year to current year of 2020. May of 2019 had 1432 rounds played, while May of 2020 had 2434 rounds played. Revenue for May of 2019 was $44,907 and increased for May of 2020 to $74,230.

The Board voted to reopen the CCMD office on June 30, 2020. Director Cook broached the subject, stating he felt it was time for office to be reopened, that it was an inconvenience to the public to have it closed. Eccher explained that restricted access to the office for such things as viewing the map or buying recycle bags was available, that people just needed to call for instructions. After a brief discussion of possible health risks to office workers and Pueblo County regulations the June 30th date was approved by the Board.

Phase one of the water meter update is 91% complete with 363 of 401 meters installed as of June 5, 2020. The remaining thirty-eight meters are scheduled to be installed within the next two weeks and phase one should be complete by June 19. Five meters from phases two and three have had to be replaced due to repairs. Eccher requested $150,000 from the bond fund be approved for phase two of the meter installations, so that he can begin ordering materials and meters so that they don't fall behind schedule. The Board approved the expense.

With little discussion, since the applications were complete and the Colorado City Architectural Advisory Committee(CCAAC) and Eccher had reviewed them, the Board approved two CCAAC applications. A patio awning for John Madden at 4165 Mustang Dr. ,and a new home construction at 4805 Hincklin Dr. for Dan White both received unanimous approval. Director Cook asked that the CCAAC include a notation on all future applications that zoning for covenants and Pueblo County zoning regulations had been checked.

In other CCAAC related matters, a member of the audience questioned if CCAAC meetings were announced and/or open to the public. The Board and CCAAC Chairman, Larry Burg discussed it and felt there was no need for the meetings to be open to the public. A format for courtesy letters to be sent to residents in violation of covenants is being put together and will be put on the agenda for the next meeting for the format to be approved. Director Cook requested that a demand letter be sent to Pueblo Regional Building Department asking them not to sign off on permits until they have received approval on the request from the CCAAC. Cook mentioned the many roof replacements, home paintings, etc. that should be filing for approval with the CCAAC but that is not being done because Pueblo Regional issues the permit without CCAAC's paperwork. Board Chairman, Terry Kraus asked Eccher to pursue getting this enforced.
