Coca-Cola to resubmit plans


— Coca-Cola Bottling High Country is expected to resubmit building plans to move the company's operations from Craig to Hayden, town officials said.

Construction could start as soon as this summer on the building in the new Valley View Industrial Park on the east side of town, according to a memo from the company to Hayden Town Manager Russ Martin. Coca-Cola Bottling Company High Country Chief Financial Officer Helen Riedlinger said 17 people would be employed at the building, which would be a distribution and sales location.

At a Hayden Town Board meeting Thursday, the company will request a reduction in plant investment fees, or "tap fees," for the building to $14,822.

"Tap fees" are associated with new construction. The money is used by the town to pay for water infrastructure improvements.

Hayden town staff thinks the reduction in the tap fee is fair, given the number of employees that will be working at the Coca-Cola facility.

The Hayden Town Board also will:

- Consider reappointing Jill Altman and Sherry Dunckley to three-year terms on the Parks and Recreation Board

- Consider reappointing Gordon Dowling to a five-year term on the Hayden Economic Development Commission

- Consider selecting Chris Catterson of Catterson & Co., P.C., to perform the town's 2006 audit

- Consider approving the final plat for airport garages

- Consider approving a conditional use permit for airport garages

- Consider a Creek View wastewater line cost exchange request

- Consider approving and authorizing the mayor to sign the Routt County Economic Development Cooperative Mem-orandum of Understanding, which outlines the scope of work that the group is doing and will be doing in Routt County communities.
