Note: As of October 13, work sessions will be scheduled on a rolling starting basis in order to be most efficient with time. 


Work Sessions

Laura Smith, Human Resources Director, presented the board with an updated Personnel Handbook to review. Smith indicated that she would be sending it to Department Heads to review as well before adoption, which she hopes will occur during the first BOCC meeting in December.  Smith worked with a committee of several other employees to review and update the Handbook.


Board Actions

With a 2-1 vote, the BOCC denied signing a letter of support of a conservation and access easement on land owned by Mike and Tena Theos, Coal Creek Ranch.  They agreed to sign a letter of neutrality that will likely be on the next meeting’s agenda.

The Board Approved the following:

-The Appointing Meghan Davis and Candra Robie to the Columbine Park Board.

-RFR #1 for the Rangely Airport Drainage Project for $172,106.72 with a reimbursement from the FFA for the entire amount.

-RFR #5 for the Rangely Airport Project, to replace previous RFR #s 5 and 6, in the total amount of $43907.64, FFA reimbursement of $39,516.88, DOT reimbursement of $2,195.38.

-MOU with White River Conservation District for the use of one County ESRI AcrMap license.

-Amended agreement for Services with Jennifer Harris for sexual abuse/offender treatment services in the amount not to exceed $10,000.

-Agreement for services with Hilltop Community Resources for Structured parenting time in an amount not to exceed $2,000.


The BOCC also approved the rezoning of the Rangely Annex building and land (14+- acres) as industrial.  The land/building was previously zoned as agricultural and planner Leif Joy felt it was necessary to update it to the correct zone.


Commissioner Updates

Commissioner Woodruff indicated that he attended a 911 meeting and reviewed contracts regarding the cathedral bluff tower.  Commissioner Rector attended a meeting with the Western States and Tribal Nations group and indicated hope that there will eventually be pipeline connectivity from the Piceance Basin back to both Jordan Cove and Costa Azul.  Commissioner Moyer worked on a budget follow-ups, sat in on a Basin Round Table Meeting and a Club 20 meeting regarding Forest Health.


Board of Public Health Meeting

The BOCC adjourned as the BOCC and reconvened as the Board of Public Health.

The Board heard updates from Alice Harvey, Public Health Director regarding COVID.  The Board took public comments from citizens that attended both in person and by phone.  Due to a significant increase of COVID cases over the past two weeks, Harvey asked the Board of Public Health to make a strong statement to the public supporting mask wearing and social distancing. The Board asked for time to think about their messaging, with another possible meeting on Tuesday November 23 after the BOCC meeting, but nothing was decided for sure before adjournment.
