Storm forces rescheduling of county meetings

Adverse weather closed county offices Tuesday, forcing the rescheduling of the following meetings:

• The special meeting and public hearing regarding the 2009 budget and the 2007 audit report will be held today, Dec 18, at 2 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room at the Archuleta County Courthouse.

• The Humane Society Bond Hearing will be held on Dec. 22 at 1:30 p.m. in the Extension Building at the Archuleta County Fairgrounds. The hearing will be followed by the regular Board of County Commissioners meeting scheduled for that day.

In addition, a joint work session between town and county officials to discuss the merger of their respective building and planning departments has been postponed.

The meeting was originally scheduled for 9 a.m. today in Town Hall, but will be rescheduled after commissioners-elect Clifford Lucero and John Ranson take office in January.
