To help keep the county courthouse clear on Tuesday for those dropping off election ballots, the Chaffee County commissioners rescheduled their meeting for 9 a.m. Wednesday in the commissioners meeting room, 104 Crestone Ave.

Commissioners have scheduled two public hearings during their meeting. The first is on a request for a plat amendment from THS Investments LLC for 14758 Quartz Circle, Salida. The request is to amend the building envelope to avoid an irrigation ditch and drainage.

The second hearing is on a request for a boundary line adjustment by Midge Sellers and William and Jacqueline Rice for 14022 and 14525 CR 175, Salida. They want to adjust the property lines between the two properties so the existing structures on the Sellers property will be entirely within the Sellers property, through the even trade of land.

The commissioners will also consider extending the Declaration of Local Disaster Emergency, while clarifying the effect of the declaration on county operations and consider the ratifications of any other related agreements.

Other items on the agenda include:

  • Report from the county sheriff.
  • A request for a 60-day extension to record the plat and subdivision improvements agreement for Cactus Ranch.
  • A final resolution denying the Cool Clear Water major impact review.
  • Possible appointment of Beth Helmke as a voting member of the Marijuana Excise Tax Advisory Board.
  • Possible appointment of Kristi Olson to the Transportation Board to fill the position vacated by Susan Shepard.
  • Possible appointment of Jamie Billesbach to the Chaffee County Visitors Bureau.
  • Release of the remaining deposit for Live Nation expenses incurred.
  • Review of a building inspection and appeals board intergovernmental agreement with Buena Vista.
  • A request to renew the hotel and restaurant liquor license for Monarch Mountain ski and snowboard area.
