The plant is currently running at 70% capacity during the permit testing phase.
  • Gene Millbrand, Prowers County Commissioner, answered questions in regard to a recent newspaper article regarding food licensing for vendors. Anyone selling food to the public technically must have a license. There will be an open forum meeting, date to be determined, sponsored by the Colorado Department of Health and Jackie Brown, director of Prowers County Public Health. A state issued license can be obtained after attending free classes on food safety and handling and a licensure fee of $175 annually. This may or may not affect up-coming events.
  • Gene Millbrand also spoke of some changes being made to the East Prowers Cemetery Park District; they currently have two openings on the board. These positions are appointed. Currently the bi-laws and job descriptions are being revised and created. Interested persons should contact the commissioner’s office at the courthouse.

Pearl Reyman made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 1:15 pm and Cynthia Simon seconded the motion. Thanks were given for a delicious meal.
