Steamboat briefs for Oct. 3

Hayden Town Board meeting rescheduled

— The Hayden Town Board meeting planned for Thursday was rescheduled for Tuesday because of a possible lack of a quorum. The meeting will be 7 p.m. Tuesday at Hayden Town Hall, 178 W. Jefferson Ave. Agenda highlights include a Solandt Memorial Hospital restoration resolution and discussion about creating a town purchasing policy. The full agenda is available at Town Hall.

Hayden Police Station road gets approval

The Colorado Department of Transportation has approved the road that will be home to the new Hayden Police Station. The OK came through Tuesday, Hayden Town Manager Russ Martin said.

The approval was delayed partly because state engineers wanted to check the project carefully with the state Attorney General’s Office, Martin said. The road on the eastern side of town near the Haven Assisted Living Center extends out almost to U.S. Highway 40 but could not be attached to that roadway without CDOT approval.

Precision Excavating is building the road, to be called Hawthorne Street. The connection could be completed as soon as two weeks after the company starts work, Martin said.

Playground volunteers needed at Strawberry Park

The Steamboat Springs School District is seeking volunteers to clear the playground at Strawberry Park Elementary School. Workers are needed any time they are available to rake rocks and prepare the playground area for topsoil.

Volunteers can check in at the school office, and some rakes will be available on site. For more information, call Rick Denney at 871-3194.
