    Public Hearing
    A Feasibility Study to determine the pros and cons of moving the offices of 3 county buildings (plus two other rented office spaces) into the former Kmart building (1198 W. Victory Way) has been completed and the results were discussed at 3 different public hearings
    (September 29, October 5 & 13).
     
    For 20 years, the 14th Judicial District has been asking Moffat County to provide a solution to safety, security and space needs at the courthouse. This year, the County conducted a feasibility study paid for by the Colorado Under-Funded Courthouse Facility Commission and Colorado Department of Local Affairs to look at options for improvement to the existing building and to explore moving the County offices into the Kmart Building. The goal is to consolidate 3 buildings into one, thereby reducing the overall operating costs to the County. If it is feasible to move, the County would sell those 3 properties after they are vacated. The cost of the project would be paid for using the sales tax already in place that pays for the bonds at the Public Safety Center, meaning no new taxes would be required to fund the project.

    Please see a link to the full Feasibility Study below in "Popular Topics"

  • Moffat County to move to Stage 1 Fire Restrictions, Wednesday September 30, 2020.

    The move from Stage 2 to Stage 1 relaxes some of the restrictions that have been in place since late August.

    Even though fire weather and fuel conditions across Moffat County have improved, the wildland fire danger remains high.

    Stage 1 Fire Restrictions prohibit:

    Personal use of fireworks

    Campfires outside of designated fire pits or fire rings

    Agricultural open burning without a Sheriff’s issued burn permit

    Use of explosive targets

    Smoking outside near combustible materials.

    There are 2 projects under construction in the park.

    1. The first one replaces all of the ageing underground electric power with new upgrades to the panels moving from primary to secondary metering.  Once complete maintenance costs on the main lines will be borne by Yampa Valley Electric, not the County.

     

    This project also includes adding a new road and picnic pavilion to the north side of the irrigated grass area.The picnic pavilion will be able to double as a band stand and will have enough power for lights and sound.There will be added pipe rail fencing around the perimeter with power outlets for vendors and a new section of irrigated grass. Festivals will be free of the sound of generators.

    Total Project Cost: $450,000

     

    This project is funded by:

    DOLA : $200,000

    Tri State Generation:$150,000

    City of Craig:$45,000

    Moffat County:$45,000

    YVEA : $10,000

     

    1. The second project is rebuilding the boat ramp and adding river access near the Kiwanis Kiosk.  The river access will include a handicap access ramp with a river put in.

     

    Project cost: $190,000

     

    Colorado Parks and Wildlife: $116,000

    Yampa River Fund: $44,800
