The Oak Creek Town Board’s first meeting of the year is rife with action items as the board will discuss issues ranging from utility rates for businesses and seniors to the future of two town employee positions.

The meeting is at 7 p.m. Thursday at Oak Creek Town Hall.

During the meeting, the board will address water and sewer rates for a resident who wants to reclassify her building, which used to be a laundromat, as a regular business, as well as clarify the water- and trash-rate discounts for seniors.

The board also will disclose and discuss the finalists for the position of town clerk.

Also on the agenda is a discussion of the job of Public Works supervisor, a position that Bob Redding resigned as of Dec. 30. Tom Holliday, who was hired in September, will be named interim Public Works supervisor.

Oak Creek faces a fundamental problem in fairly billing commercial water usage when they refuse to read water meters to determine commercial water usage. As far as Colorado's Dept of Local Affairs (DOLA) knew back in 2007 when visiting Oak Creek to provide help, Oak Creek is the only water district in the state that does not use water meters for billing commercial users for usage.

The worst part is that the Town has been unable to develop a plan to start reading water meters for at least commercial water users. Unlike every other water district that managed to transition from unmetered billing to metered billing such as Town of Yampa about a decade ago, Oak Creek has been unable to even develop a transition plan.

I believe that Bob left for a job for Routt County. I do not think he was pushed or encouraged to look for another job.
