Town Board discusses revamping gazebo at park

The Dolores Town Board gave the nod to give the large gazebo at Joe Rowell Park a makeover before the River Festival rolls around on June 1.

Town Manager Ryan Mahoney said the gazebo will get a new coat of paint, stain and concrete will be fixed.

Dolores Town Trustees also stated that they would like a workshop this summer to discuss retail sales and regulations of marijuana in Dolores.

"There are a lot of things and a lot of information," Town Attorney Mike Green said. "You are going to be asked to look at some all encompassing legislation, not just wether we sell it in retail or not."

Mahoney also told trustees that he plans to chip and seal the section of Central Avenue from First to Third Avenue. This will likely happen in June or July and cost about $14,000.

Chip and seal is less expensive than paving and will look like the stretch of road in front of the Dolores Elementary School.

Bill Manning got the go ahead to make fruit leather in town as part of his business.

Atmos Energy was approved to install a communication antenna that would read all the meters in the area for gas and will result in a rental fee of $1,600 a year paid to the town.

In closed session, Mahoney was given his annual review and was given a $5,000 annual increase salary.
