Excavation work began on November 6 in Granada for the CDOT Safe Routes to School project.  Granada Police Chief, David Dougherty, provided a progress report to the Trustees during their monthly meeting on November 11th.   Work on curbs and gutters is expected to begin the latter part of the week and warm weather will be needed to put down the overlay.  He added, that the contract grant stipulates that at least $160,000 has to be spent before the end of the month; otherwise DOLA will negate their $34,000 grant for the project.  Dougherty said the balance of the grant will be spent on construction materials.

Dougherty asked the Trustees for direction on where to house any stray dogs his department impounds.  There are only one or two he’s noticed in the community recently, but the issue has come up before and the numbers of dogs has fluctuated.  The matter will be discussed at a later time.  The chief discussed making a request from the VALE organization, requesting $9,432.20 to cover the costs for a town employee in the police department.  He said the board reduced funding to $6,125.60 and the local VALE board made up the difference.

The Trustees had a light agenda which covered the December 7th visit by Santa Clause at the Town Complex at 6pm to hand out bags of candy to area youth.  The Trustees approved a CIRSA insurance renewal of $262 to cover costs for equipment breakdowns, and approved use of the Complex through November for various activities.  A meeting was set for November 18 to continue discussions on finalizing the 2016 budget.
