We Wod For Yoal The board also reviewed applications for the Public Works position and inter- views were to be held Monday 'following the meeting. Drainage problems in Shawn Lea were on the agen- da and property owners along Montana Way were in- vited to the meeting to dis- cuss possible solutions, both short term and long term. Only one. Lorna Rich. at- tended the meeting but agreed the drainage is not working the way it should. One solution discussed was curb and gutter, which would be an expense in- curred by the property owner. Rich said she feels the expense would benefit her, regardless of the fact she would have to pay for the improvements. Dale Williams approached the board about the pos- sibility of purchasing town property which currently houses the town main- tenance shop. He would not want to take possession until it is vacated and plans to build a residence on the site eventually. Mayor Mary Helen deKoevend suggested Williams return to the next meeting after everyone has had a chance to look at his proposal from all angles. She also noted that Pat Rlchards has expressed an interest in purchasing some town property and the mayor believes it Is the same property Williams is talking about. The town has checked with Montrose County Planning and Zoning Commission about the possibility of either the mayor or a board member serving as the town's repre- sentative on the county P&Z board. The county said there was no problem with either one serving in that capacity. Jess Fulbrlght reported on meeting with the forest ser- vice concerning public land use. He said a couple of movements were underfoot to prohibit unrestricted travel and camping outside specified campground areas which were squelched. He said the group will study dif- ferent sections of the Uncom- pahgre at different times in order to address the issues in specific sections one at a time. That way perhaps more public input can be received concerning needs for keeping some roads open, closing others, and related issues, Public Works supervisor Carl Pender reported that the water treatment plant is run- nlngwell but the monitors for turbidity and for chlorine are not hooked up to the dialer. He plans to contact Huston Enterprises about getting those systems hooked into the dialer so ffthere is a prob- lem. the plant will be shut down automatically and Public Works wlll be notified by telephone. Marshal Richard DeWeber suggested posting signs at the town parks noting the state statute prohibiting el- Hill Hounds Hold 4-H Enrollment The 4-H Hill Hounds Dog Club held an enrollment meeting In Norwood on Oc- tober the 6th for any one in- terested In the club or learning how to teach their dog new tricks.

Dale Williams made another proposal to the town board, this one concerning park benches with advertis- ing in various areas around town. A motion passed for him to meet with Parks Com- missioner Paul Koski to in- vestigate possible locations and to bring a formal agree- ment to the next board meet- Ing. The Universal Building Code was discussed again but no action was taken to adopt the UBC for the town. Bobbl Barnes was ap- pointed to server, on the West End Hospital board as Nucla's representative. Norwood Loan... continued from page 1 87500 for the preparation of a feasibility study for the con- struction of the raw water reservoir. Ordinance #1010 was brought up before the Board. This ordinance is for the approval to borrow the funding from the Colorado Water Conservation Board to build the 30 million gallon reservoir. The loan would be in the amount of 8580.000 and would be paid back through the water users fee's. At the present time there are 540 active water ta s in the system. The reset- volr ts needed to provide storage through the winter months and to prevent shortages like the one this summer. This reservoir would also provide enough storage so that expansion of the water system could" begin. If all the paper work is met this year. construction on the reservoir could begin next summer, and provide water by 1996. The vacancy on the board was filled with the appoint- ment of Chris Romaine as trustee.
