County’s Emergency Manager estimates macroburst caused 8 to 10 million in damages
(Correction on Taxes Paragraph 6)- The Governor Did Not waive the payment of 2nd half taxes, he did a bill that the LATE INTEREST ON 2ND HALF TAXES could be waived if counties opted in. Washington County is Not opting in nor waiving late interest on 2nd half taxes. The HB30-1421 was intended to be used by the counties who are less than 90% collection of current year taxes. Washington County is currently at 94.8% collected. Please call office if you have questions. 970-345-6601

Commissioner Wells called the meeting to order at 8:03 a.m. There was no old business and no public comment. Commissioner Willeke added backup power for the courthouse and approval of the revised By- Laws for the county’s planning and zoning committee to the agenda. Commissioner Laybourn added a request for financial aid from Linda Delango from CSU extension. The consent agenda was then approved (County Payables $110,726.06, Nursing Home $6510.48, Pioneer Haven $415.00, and the prior minutes of the June 9 regular meeting). Denise Chavez presented one building permit for approval, Basler – RW20-06. The permit was approved by the board. The board then discussed approving the By-Laws that were passed by the Washington County Planning and Zoning Board on Monday, June 15. After much discussion, a motion was made by Commissioner Willeke to approve the By-Laws upon the approval of the final draft by the county attorney. Commissioner Laybourn seconded and the motion and it carried. Commissioner Willeke then nominated Jonell Mollohan as a District 2 representative to the planning and zoning board. The board unanimously approved the nominee.
Patrick McCall, the county’s emergency manager then gave the commissioners his weekly update on the COVID-19. He stated that the county still has 44 cases and that has not changed in 3 or 4 weeks. He said the testing kits that the county was planning on using were compromised in last week’s fire in the administrator’s office and should not be used. Misty Peterson, the administrator informed the commissioners that the nursing home had 300 kits and we can borrow some and replace their kits later. More was discussion on the testing and the question, Do the 28 inmates at the Justice Center, count in the county’s total for positive cases? Peterson is trying to get clarification from the state on the matter. The discussion turned to the county fair and its ability to meet the state requirements. Commissioners Wells laid out a plan for the fair. There is the question if CSTI, the county’s insurance company, will cover the event if the state variance is violated. Commissioner Willeke asked about the Junior Livestock Sale. A big concern for the sale is the buy back. The Ferris Wheel that was damaged in last week microburst is fixable according to the Eli Bridge Company, the builder of the Ferris Wheel.
Arickaree Superintendent Tonya Rodwell informed the commissioners at the meeting that the new playground at the school was complete. The county help secure a GOCO grant for the new playground. Commissioner Laybourn, the commissioners contact for the project, signed off on the project at Tuesday’s meeting.
The Emergency Manager and the County Administrator then gave the commissioners a rundown on last week’s macroburst. McCall estimated that there was 8 to 10 million dollars in damage. The minimum to qualify as an Emergency Disaster is eight million in the region. The region includes all the county’s that were hit by the macroburst. The County Administrator then asked the commissioners to adopt resolution 74-2020 which would extend the original disaster declaration to 30-day. The WCBOC approved the resolution.
In other business the county gave their approval for the Lone Star School District Graduation to be held on June 20. The county landfill will be open on Saturday for two weeks. Misty Peterson was approved as the county’s Dola contact.
A $54,854.80 capital purchase to Wern Air for two AC units and the installation of the units at the Justice Center was approved. Two AC units were damaged in the last week’s storm. Two pods at the Justice Center are out of commission at this time and cannot be used until the units are up and running.
County Treasurer Deb Cooper informed the commissioners that the governor waved the second half of the taxes. The governor did allow each county to set their own guidelines. Cooper informed the commissioners that 94.84 percent of the taxes have already been collected. She saw no need for the county to extend the deadline. “The schools and other entities are relying on the revenue,” said Cooper. “We were 95% collected at the end of June in 2019.”
County Clerk Annie Kuntz was hot under the collar in more ways than one at Tuesday’s meeting. The courthouse AC units were not operating at the meeting on Tuesday. The courthouse has been on a backup Y-W generator since the storm. The generator went down on Monday afternoon and election judges were verifying voter signatures of ballots that had been returned and Motor Vehicle customers/taxpayers had to be turned away. “We need to spend some money to update the electrical backup and a generator for the courthouse,” said Kuntz. “We had a courthouse full of people that wanted to do their county business and we had to send them away. My office last year brought in over 2 million dollars but here I have to turn taxpayers away because we don’t have a generator for our building. You spend money on the Nursing Home, Pioneer Haven and Justice Center. I think we need to spend some our Courthouse.” Misty Peterson mentioned after the meeting that they were also told to shed power by turning off all extra lights and not to run fans. Regular meeting adjourned at 10:00 a.m.
The meeting for the supplemental hearing was called to order at 10:00 am. The commissioners passed resolution 75 2020. The resolution allowed the WCBOC to transfer $60,000 out Conservation Trust Fund Reserve to the 2020 Conservation Trust Fund Budget. The Conservation Trust fund’s balance was $199,000 prior to the transfer.
The meeting was adjourned.
The commissioners meet every Tuesday at the Washington County Court House. Public Comment time is 8:15 a.m.

Tuesday's Storm Event from Akron to Haxtun Colorado. Are we getting familiar with the new weather terms?

There was no evidence of a tornado Tuesday on the eastern plains. It was a macroburst that caused the damage. That's a straight-line thunderstorm wind. Kind of like a small derecho. 100 mph winds would be stronger than most Colorado tornadoes though.

Interesting Mystery in northeast Colorado.

Interesting Mystery in northeast Colorado.

We are aware of and have been investigating the multiple reports of drone sightings in the county over the last week. Deputies were out all night this evening along with Yuma County SO tracking these drones. Tonight we tracked over 16 drones between the two counties. We believe that the drones, though startling, are not malicious in nature. The Sheriff's Office is following up on leads and communications with state and federal agencies to pinpoint the exact nature to their activities. As more information comes available, we will keep you informed. If any of these drones fly onto your property or are looking into windows, please call the communications center immediately so a deputy can respond to your location. If you happen to come into possession of one of these drones, please contact the Sheriff's Office so we can conduct a forensic evaluation of the drone to identify the owners and take the appropriate actions.

a 10 1/2 minute video re-cap on the heroic actions of multiple agencies September 12th 2013 in the Big Thompson Canyon, as seen from the front lines of two rope rescues and along highway 34. Video starts around 8 AM, and concludes near 11 PM. Video by Justin King, who originally went into the canyon behind LFRA crews to document a "simple" rope rescue, which turned into a much more complex task as the road washed away behind us.
