In the span of less than 10 minutes, Fort Lupton City Council did the following during its regular meeting on Sept. 21:
Council approved an intergovernmental agreement between it, the city of Brighton, the city of Lochbuie and the city of Commerce City for victim advocate services, effective Jan. 1. The annual fee runs about $52,500.
Council also approved a property casualty renewal insurance plan totaling almost $394,000, a $43,000 boost from the 2022 premiums. Staff notes said previous years’ increases were due, in part, to police and legislative officials’ liability costs. The figure is an estimate, and the exact amounts will be spread out between affected funds and added to next year’s budget.
Council also OK’d the Colorado Big Thompson’s 2023 assessment from the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District. The amount won’t be greater than $158,600. The charges are for 50 acre-feet of 2022 assessment at a rate of $49.10 per acre-foot, according to staff, and more than 3,000 acre-feet at 2023 assessment levels of $50.55 per acre-foot. The fee is $4,500 more than in 2022.
The project, according to its website, collects and delivers more than 200,000 acre-feet of supplemental water per year from the Western Slope to more than 1 million residents and 615,000 acres of irrigated farmland in northeast Colorado.
Council also accepted applications and established neighborhoods (the city) for two potential liquor licenses. One is for El Raparo Mexican & Grill Inc, in the 800 block of Seventh St., and the other is for a Family Dollar Store at 130 S. Denver Ave. Hearings for both are Tuesday, Oct. 18.
And, lastly, councilors got an update on Fort Lupton’s football team. The Bluedevils, who didn’t play last week, are 3-1 this season. FLHS travels to Berthoud at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30.
