Council Reviews New Business

  The Central City Council met on Tuesday, August 6th to discuss three new resolutions followed by an executive session regarding new development within the City.

  The first resolution, number 13-11, is to conditionally approve a Special Review Use Permit for wireless facilities to be installed on City property. AT&T has requested a Special Review Use permit from the city which, if approved, will allow AT&T to begin design and construction of a new wireless tower on city property. The resolution passed unanimously.

  The second resolution is for adopting an amended volunteer firefighter length of service award plan. The resolution would change some dates of the plan, the manner funds are handled if no beneficiary is named, disbursements and distributions of funds, and expand accountable expenses to included individual fire and/or safety equipment and gym memberships. The resolution passed unanimously.

  The third item was a resolution approving a memorandum of understanding with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment regarding the Quartz Hill Remediation project. The Memorandum of Understanding summarizes the reclamation plan in terms of regarding significant quantities of waste to reduce the steepness of slopes, placement of rock/base course cover to isolate the waste, and installation of a new large diameter storm sewer under Nevada Street. The motion passed unanimously.

  The council also reviewed an official letter of support from the City Council to the Great Outdoors Colorado Fund for the grant application of the Gilpin County Parks & Recreation Department. This grant is for the installation of a new permanent park pavilion adjacent to the County ball fields. The letter of support was approved and passed unanimously.

  The next council meeting is Tuesday, August 20th.
