The Board of Trustees held a follow-up community meeting on Monday, August 16th, 2004 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rico Town Hall to present information from additional studies of alternative sewer sites. The alternative sewer sites being studied include the commercial site on the south side of the Sundial Development, the Colorado Bell placer claim (Rico Ball Park area), and an area just north of the cemetery between Highway 145 and the Dolores River. Additional studies include floodplain analysis; engineering analysis for extending collection lines, elevations, and lift stations; and, an overview of condemnation authority.
Based on the information presented at the meeting, the Board of Trustees made the decision to drop the Sundial and Ball Park sites from consideration and concentrate on the North Cemetery site as the primary sewer treatment plant location with the Pasadena Reduction Tract as backup.
