Mary Rushton Swears in Megan Jara as Holly Clerk & Treasurer

Some slight modifications were made to the Holly administrative line-up during the Trustee’s monthly meeting in light of former Administrator, Marsha Willhite’s resignation.  Mary Rushton, Town Clerk and Treasurer assumed the administrator’s duties on an interim basis and Megan Jara was sworn in as the new Clerk and Treasurer for Holly.  Rushton told the Trustees a search committee for a permanent administrator had been formed and candidates were being interviewed, beginning January 5.

The State of Colorado mandates that a city’s water tank comply with quality and sanitation standards and the Trustees approved a ten year contract with the lone bidder, Pittsburgh Tank and Tower Maintenance for an annual fee of $12,600.  The Trustees also approved a four year lease for a new loader for the town’s landfill.  The total cost is $53,512 at $1,323 a month from 4Rivers Company.  Rushton said she will double check with the company on their offer of a five year extended warranty for $2,600.  The town sets aside $20,000 a year towards the purchase price of a new loader.

Under housekeeping agenda items, the Trustees approved the 2015 employee wage scale as reflected in the approved budget.  Resolution 2014-10 was approved continuing the identical rates for water and sewage into the new year from 2014.  Rushton said some discussion on potential changes will be needed for 2016.  Calendar dates for regular monthly meetings were set for the first Wednesday of the month through the next year and Mayor Brad Simon volunteered to replace Marsha Willhite as one of the two representatives to the Arkansas River Power Authority for the remainder of her term.

The Liquor License renewal for JR’s Country Store was approved and the Trustees voted approved to allow the Holly Housing Authority to participate in CIRSA coverage under the town’s contract.  This will have no financial impact on the existing agreement.
