Oak Creek board approves 2006 audit

Special permit granted to Labor Day Committee for alcohol sales

— During a special meeting Monday night, the Oak Creek Town Board approved its 2006 audit to be submitted to the State of Colorado.

Oak Creek Mayor Kathy “Cargo” Rodeman said the Town Board approved the audit with one correction.

Town Board member John Crawford reportedly raised a question about the source of the town’s energy supply because the audit stated the town received 100 percent of its power from Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska, though a small percentage of the town’s power does come from Yampa Valley Electric Association.

About 1 percent of the town’s power is supplied by YVEA, though that energy is used primarily to power the town’s sewer plant, Rodeman said.

The town had applied for an extension to submit the audit after the Aug. 1 deadline because it was not going to get the audit back from the town’s Denver-based auditor, Tim Mayberry, in time to meet the state’s deadline.

The town received Mayberry’s audit Aug. 10, which gave the Town Board three days to review it before approving it, she said.

Rodeman said recent treasurer turnover caused some problems in preparing the audit as well.

“The fact that we only have a part-time treasurer and that we switched the treasurers that were working with (Mayberry) to help him prepare (the audit) had a lot to do with it,” she said.

Copies of the town’s 2006 audit are available for review at the Oak Creek Town Hall, 129 Nancy Crawford Blvd.

In other business, the Town Board granted a special-use permit to the town’s Labor Day Committee allowing the group to sell alcohol at an event Sept. 3. With the permit, the group will be allowed to sell alcohol from 2 to 7 p.m. during the “Boogie with Blue” concert at Decker Park.
