Your Town Council meets Tuesday, May 21. View the full agenda online.

Town Council is scheduled to discuss several items and present multiple proclamations. Town Council will be proclaiming the week of May 19-25 as National Public Works Week and recognizing Public Works Director Bob Goebel upon his retirement after more than 17 years of service with the Town.

Council will also receive a report on potential property acquisition within the Plum Creek PUD. The purpose of the report is to update the public on the process to date. 

Here is a preview of a couple other items on Tuesday’s agenda:

  • Ordinance prohibiting the sale of kratom to minors – Town Council will consider the first reading of an ordinance that would prohibit the sale of kratom to people under the age of 18. The ordinance would also include a fine not to exceed $300 per violation.

    This ordinance is a culmination of serval months of public outreach and roundtable discussions. Many federal agencies, include the FDA and DEA, are studying kratom due to concerns about potential abuse and quality control. If approved, this ordinance would regulate the sale of kratom in the community to standards similar to the sale of tobacco to minors. 

  • Resolution approving the second amendment to the PCWPF Advance Treatment construction agreement – Town Council will be asked to approve the second amendment to the Plum Creek Water Purification Facility Advanced Treatment construction agreement with Garney Companies Inc. The agreement will represent the final work package in the construction agreement. This final work includes construction of a new building to house the advanced treatment systems and the installation and startup of the new systems. The new advanced treatment processes will treat collected renewable surface water, including reusable water, from Plum Creek for use by Castle Rock Water customers.

    Purified reuse water is a big part of Castle Rock Water’s long-term water plan. A primary major goal is to establish a renewable, sustainable water supply that accounts for 75 percent of the annual demand for water in Castle Rock by 2050, or sooner. Renewable sources include alluvial wells, surface water from East Plum Creek and imported surface water from outside the Plum Creek Basin.
