The board of trustees to the town of Buena Vista met on Nov. 23. Here are four things to know.

1 The board unanimously decided to extend the local disaster emergency declaration.

In addition to this, the board decided to limit public meeting attendance to Zoom, while continuing to meet in-person.

“I too enjoy our in-person meetings. I feel like it’s good for our relationship with one another,” said Trustee Libby Fay, echoing Trustee Cindy Swisher. Swisher had noted that she had attended the previous meeting virtually due to an exposure to COVID-19.

2 The new police station will be located at 28362 CR 317, currently the home of Valley Home Furnishing. The board unanimously voted to enter into a purchase and sale agreement, with plans to renovate and outfit the building for town police.

3 Two holidays were added to the 2022 schedule for town staff. The town will observe Juneteenth on the twentieth of June and Cabrini Day on the third of October.

Juneteenth celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the United States, harking back to a significant event in Galveston, Texas in 1865. It was designated as a federal holiday in June 2021.

Cabrini Day was made a state holiday in March, 2020 and honors Frances Xavier Cabrini, who established Denver’s first orphanage, among scores of orphanages, hospitals and schools in the Americas.

4 Fading West was granted amendments to its public improvement agreement with the town.

The amendments give the company until the end of June, 2022 to finish roads and drainage facilities in the area of their factory off Gregg Drive and allow a certificate of occupancy to be issued prior to the project’s completion.
