Due to the increased number of COVID 19 cases in the State of Colorado, the Governor's office has issued the following executive order:

  • Individuals older than 10 are required to wear face coverings in Public indoor Spaces, unless they have a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a mask.
  • This includes using or waiting to use any form of transportation, a taxi service, car service, or ride sharing service.
  • Businesses must post signs and refuse service to people not wearing masks.

Due to dry conditions for the foreseeable future and diminished resources as a result of the coronavirus, the Town of Rico has enacted a fire ban. 

  1. Open fires are prohibited within the Town of Rico as long as current drought conditions persist.
  2. An "open fire" is any fire in an outdoor location where burning is not contained in an incinerator, outdoor fireplace, barbecue grill or barbecue pit. Bum barrels and incinerators must have an adequate screen to restrict ash.
  3. This ban on open fires shall continue in effect at all times, or until the Board of Trustees suspends such ban by adoption of a Resolution finding that drought conditions have subsided.
  4. Fireworks are prohibited within the Town of Rico as long as current drought conditions persist.
  5. Any person who knowingly causes an open fire in violation of this Ordinance shall be punished by imprisonment for a term not exceeding thirty days, or by a fine not exceeding the sum of $50.00, plus costs, or by both a fine and imprisonment for use of fireworks;
  6. Because of the high wildfire danger, the Board of Trustees declares an emergency and adopts this ordinance upon first reading.

The Governor's Office has issued a new mandate regarding the coronavirus called "Safer at Home". Please go to https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/ricocolorado/coronanvirus-resources for more comprehensive information and a list of coronavirus resources.

Due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, access to the Rico Town Hall will be limited.  Please wear a facemask if you need to come in to do business. 

The State of Colorado Department of Health and Environment has information regarding Colorado cases of COVID-19 (the Coronavirus) at https://covid19.colorado.gov/. There is also information available at https://www.ricofire.org/sample-page/.

The Town is making every effort to provide information to residents.  Please continue to check this web site and the Rico Bulletin Board at https://www.facebook.com/groups/183518351691923/ for updates.
