posted February 17, 2017 - Regarding 100 Block Parking

Hello 100 Block Business & Property Owners,

The Minturn Town Council and the Economic Development Advisory Committee are addressing the parking issue for the 100 Block of Minturn, and have approved the attached cover memo and letter for immediate release. Many of you signed the recent petition requesting two-hour parking in the 100 Block of Main Street. Before we take that somewhat drastic step, we want to ensure all parties are aware of the problem, have a chance to self-correct the issue and are presented with the opportunity to have their voices heard. In addition to this email we will be mailing out the letter, including it on the town webpage and I plan to go door to door to discuss personally with everyone.

The parking issues on the 100 Block can be solved by business owners and their employees parking in the free municipal lot rather than immediately in front of each store, thus leaving those spaces open to customers. Acknowledging that habits can be difficult to change, we’re giving this voluntary measure approximately a month and a half to see if it can work. The town does not want to start ticketing our local employees and business owners and hopes everyone can take part in this solution so as to avoid additional government regulations.

I also plan to go door to door to discuss this issue directly. If we’re not able to touch base in person, please feel free to call (970) 827-5645 x2 or email me anytime. Also, our Town Council can be reached at: council@minturn.org and Willy Powell, Town Manager, can be reached at: manager@minturn.org.

Let’s all team up to create a workable solution for everyone!

Eagle County’s Community Alert System

Eagle County’s community alert system will undergo a service change on Oct. 31. As a result, all residents, visitors and business owners already subscribed to EC Alert will need to re-register at www.ecalert.org to continue receiving notifications.

The change is necessary because the county’s current provider for EC Alerts is retiring the system. Everbridge, the system in use locally for 9-1-1 call backs, has been selected as the replacement.

If you wish to continue receiving these kinds of notifications, you will need to go to ecalert.org and create a new account. Subscribers to the new EC Alert platform will be able to set up location-based notifications; pick areas of interest such as traffic and weather; choose delivery options including email and phones; and change their subscriptions at any time.

Remember, if you choose NOT to sign up for Everbridge, you will no longer receive traffic or other notifications as of Nov. 1. We encourage you to take about 10 minutes to create your account

Critical rockfall mitigation scheduled Monday on US 24 near Minturn

Full closure of SH 24 required to perform work - Begins March 23

EAGLE COUNTY-Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) crews working with Yenter companies will begin emergency rockfall mitigation on US 24 beginning Monday, March 23. The nature of the work will include scaling and removing around 1000+ cubic yards of debris on the slope above mile marker 149 and for the safety of the traveling public will require a full closure of SH 24 for possibly three days.

"We feel it's imperative that this emergency work needs to be done now to assure other loose material is not coming down on the roadway as we warm up this spring," said Ty Ortiz, CDOT Geohazards Program Manager. "Our team is working to be proactive at these sites in an attempt to mitigate rockfall hazards like the ones we’ve encountered in places like Glenwood Canyon," he noted.

IMPACTS: CDOT crews will close US 24 Monday morning, March 23 around 7:30 a.m. at mile marker 153 near the town of Red Cliff and at mile marker 148 near the town of Minturn. Once crews complete the initial emergency scaling, work will continue through the month to erect permanent rockfall devices. Traffic will resume during the permanent work with some delays expected.

ALTERNATE ROUTES: For motorists traveling this stretch of highway the alternate route would be SH 91 northbound to I-70.

To receive real-time updates about road conditions in your area, log on to www.cotrip.org, download the CDOT Mobile app or call 511 from anywhere in the state. You can also find us at www.facebook.com/coloradodot or on Twitter: @coloradodot.

Town of Minturn—Logging by United States Forest Service (U.S.F.S.)

Over the next several weeks, logging activities of the Martin Creek/U.S.F.S. region in Minturn will occur. This project is being undertaken for health and safety of the Forest and to help reduce the chances of a Forest Fire occurring in this area.

The helicopter utilized to remove the logs operates more efficiently and safely during the cooler morning hours of the day. As the temperatures rise during the day, the safe operation of the helicopter is diminished. Therefore, to make the most efficient use of the contractors’ time/effort, the removal of the logs begins very early in the morning. We know this activity can be quite noisy; however, we do appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this time.

USFS Forest Mitigation: White River National Forest in the Minturn area.
Duration: One to two weeks.
Date: Beginning August 20, 2013
Please direct questions to the USFS staff at 970-827-5150

Contamination Cleanup:

Colorado Division of Oil and Public Safety, Remediation Section And CGRS, Inc.
Will begin an in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) project in the Town of Minturn on July 29, 2013.

Project Background:
A leak in the buried piping system serving the gasoline dispensers at the Shop and Hop C-store located at 401 Main Street was discovered on June 30, 2008.  An unknown quantity of gasoline penetrated the underlying soils and has contaminated the groundwater in a plume that extends from the release area at the Shop and Hop, north for a distance of over 450 feet. 

CGRS, Inc. (CGRS) is under contract with the Colorado Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) to perform cleanup measures for the contamination. 

Contamination Cleanup:
Based on results of pilot testing performed during February of this year, in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) may provide the most unobtrusive method to clean up the contamination with the least disruption to property and business owners in the area.
ISCO is an environmental remediation method that converts contaminants (in this case, gasoline) into non-toxic byproducts (e.g. water, carbon dioxide, sodium, and sulfate ions).  ISCO will be performed by injecting a chemical oxidizer directly into the contaminated media (soil or groundwater) to destroy the gasoline contamination in place.  CGRS has received authorization from the United States Department of Environmental Quality (EPA) to perform the injections.

The oxidizer will be injected into the contaminated groundwater through the injection points or wells that were installed in Main Street, Norman Avenue and on the Shop and Hop property earlier this month.
ISCO is an attractive remediation strategy for the site because it does not require major disturbances to existing surface and subsurface improvements.  The installation of a conventional cleanup system would result in Main Street from south of Harrison Avenue through Norman Avenue to be “torn up” for anywhere from six week to two months and would result in severe impacts to business and property owners in that area. 
Unfortunately, the injections will require that parking on Main Street be limited to the side opposite from where the injections are taking place.  However, the injections will not require a “lane shift” and traffic will otherwise flow normally.  We hope to complete the injections by the end of the day on Friday, August 1, 2013. 

Questions?
Please contact Roger Sterling, P.E., Project Manager for CGRS at 800-288-2657 with questions or concerns about the project. Thank you for your patience during this project and we apologize for any inconvenience that the injections may cause.

The Town of Minturn will hold its annual Town Clean-Up Day on Saturday, June 1, 2013.  This year, the event will be held in the upper parking lot of Little Beach Park on Cemetery Road.  Last year the decision was made to move to this location and it worked out very well logistically.  The Little Beach Park location allows staff and volunteers to more efficiently assist citizens as they bring unwanted items to dispose of on June 1st. 

The annual Clean-Up event provides the citizens of Minturn with a free and convenient receptacle to deposit their appliances, debris and undesired items from their property and home.  The Minturn Public Works Department staff will be at Little Beach Park parking lot to help unload vehicles.

As in years past, there will be volunteers from Battle Mountain Development Company, the Minturn-Redcliff Business Association and the Town of Minturn with trucks to assist residents with transporting their large, unwanted items to the dumpsters.  If residents, especially senior citizens, are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, items for disposal should be prepared and ready for pick-up in an accessible area.  To sign up for this free service, please contact Lisa Osborne at the Minturn Town Offices at (970) 827-5645, extension 105 by Friday, May 31, 2013.  An e-mail may also be sent to Ms. Osborne at losborne@minturn.org. Keep in mind, the Eagle Valley Community Fund will gladly take items in good condition for their annual fundraiser Rummage Sale at Maloit Park.  

This year, residents may bring automotive batteries for disposal, free of charge.  In addition, refrigerators with Freon will be accepted during Town Clean-Up day for no charge as well.   

Items NOT accepted for pick-up or disposal include, but are not limited to:  paint, rocks and dirt, commercial construction materials, hazardous waste, flammable items and oil of any kind.  Hazardous materials may be disposed of at the Household Hazardous Waste and Small Business Collection Facility located at the Eagle County Landfill.  Hazardous residential refuse may be taken to the Collection Facility, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  No appointment is needed for residential hazardous refuse disposal; however, residents are restricted to twenty items per visit for these items.  It is requested, but not required, that businesses schedule an appointment for disposal of hazardous material and refuse.  Business appointments may be scheduled by telephoning (970) 328-3468.  Residents with questions regarding Hazardous Waste disposal may contact the same telephone number.

Volunteers are needed to team up with town staff to clean-up litter and debris in all areas of town. Volunteers will be meeting at the Little Beach Park upper parking lot at 9:00 a.m.  All volunteers are asked to sign-in and then will be provided garbage bags and safety vests.  Please remember to bring gloves to protect your hands.  Once signed-in and outfitted with the necessary gear, each volunteer will be assigned a specific area to work for litter pick-up. 

On Saturday, June 8, 2013, there will be a separate Open Space Clean Up Day.  This event will take place at the "Boneyard Property" located at 1351 U.S. Highway 24 in Minturn beginning at 10:00 a.m.  Mayor Flaherty and the Minturn Town Council invite you to participate in this event.  Please be sure to dress appropriately and bring work gloves.

Test Tornado Warning to Occur on April 17

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 12, 2012

Contact: Barry Smith, Emergency Management Director
970-328-3545
barry.smith@eaglecounty.us

(Vail)--Eagle County and the Vail Public Safety Communications Center will join the National Weather Service (NWS) Grand Junction Forecast Office and the Colorado Emergency Broadcast System in issuing a test tornado warning between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 17. While tornados are not common in Eagle County, the test will be conducted as part of Colorado's Severe Weather Awareness Week which takes place April 15-21. The topic on April 17 is tornado safety.

Two local warning systems will be tested on Tuesday including EPN, the 911 call back system which provides recorded voice information over the phone, and EC Alert which provides text messages and emails to those who have subscribed to the service.

Citizens are asked to note that phone calls made by the EPN system can be hindered by devices that screen computer generated phone calls, or cordless phones that do not function during electrical outages. Emergency response officials offer these tips to ensure residents receive emergency notification phone calls:

  • Be sure to answer your phone. Caller ID will show the caller as the Town of Vail, with a phone number of 970-479-2201.
  • Listen to the entire message. They will always start with “This is the Vail Public Safety Communications Center calling on behalf of…”
  • Do not call 911 for more information.

All residents are strongly encouraged to subscribe to EC Alert, a notification system used to contact subscribers immediately during urgent or emergency situations. Unlike EPN, the service is customizable and provides citizens with useful information and updates by sending messages to a variety of devices:

  • Email accounts
  • Cell phones and pagers
  • Smartphones, PDAs and other handheld devices

2012 FIRE BAN ANNOUNCEMENT

Thursday March 29, 2012, Eagle County Sheriff Joe Hoy, in a cooperative effort with Local Fire Authorities, has placed restrictions on open burning in Eagle County.

Eagle County has seen little moisture and fire conditions continue to worsen. In addition, Red Flag Fire and high wind warnings and watches have continued to be issued. The National Weather Service has declared March 2012 as the driest month on record. These weather conditions along with a series of large human-caused fires throughout Colorado prompted Sheriff Joe Hoy to pro-actively issue these fire restrictions.
These restrictions will take effect, at midnight (12:00 A.M.) on Friday March 30, 2012, and will remain in effect until the hazardous fire conditions subside and the restrictions are rescinded.

At this time all previously issued open burn permits are suspended until the fire ban is lifted.

The Fire Ban allows:
Fire contained within Liquid or gas fuel stoves
Camp fires in USFS improved/maintained campgrounds that are currently open to the public.
Charcoal grill fires on private lands

The Fire Ban Restricts:
All other open fire
The burning of solid fuels outside approved areas
Using explosive material: (i.e.: fireworks, blasting caps or any incendiary device which may result in the ignition of flammable material.)
Anyone found in violation of the Fire Ban may be convicted of a class 2 petty offense and may be subject to a $500 fine. Higher fines may be imposed for subsequent offenses.

For more information, contact your local fire authority:

National Drug Take Back Initiative

Saturday, October 29, 2011
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Town Hall

Minturn Police Department will be taking part in the National Drug Take Back Initiative on Saturday, October 29, 2011. The time frame is 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and the location is the lobby of the Town Hall Building. Anyone may bring their prescription or over the counter medications to be disposed of at that time. This is a nationwide initiative sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). This is the second time that the Minturn Police Department will be participating in the event. The first two Take-Back events in Colorado were very successful and netted almost 12 tons of returned medications!

This is a great opportunity to dispose of any medications that you have accumulated over the years in a safe and convenient manner!

If you have any questions, please call the Department at 970-827-4272.

National Drug Take Back Initiative:

On Saturday, October 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is sponsoring its third National Pharmaceutical Take-Back Day in Eagle County. All types of medications will be accepted, including narcotics and other DEA controlled substances, all prescription and non-prescription medications. Let's all participate by cleaning out those expired, unused and unwanted pharmaceuticals from the medicine cabinet and get them disposed of properly.

The Pharmaceutical Take-Back Day is a concerted effort between the DEA and local law enforcement agencies and has the following goals:

    • To provide residents with a safe and convenient way to dispose of medications they no longer need;
    • To destroy the collected pharmaceuticals properly through incineration, thus reducing the risk to our water resources;
    • To prevent the access of children and teenagers to medications that were not intended for their use;
    • To provide residents with an opportunity to dispose of controlled substances; such as narcotics, pain pills, sleeping pills, prescription cough syrups and attention deficit/hyperactivity medications which have been difficult to get rid of in the past.

If you are unable to make it to one of the Pharmaceutical Take-Back drop-off sites this Saturday, you have additional options:

  • The Eagle County Sheriff's Office, located at 0885 East Chambers Avenue, now has a permanent drug disposal drop box. Residents can drop off all prescription and over-the-counter medications free of charge. The box is available for use Monday through Friday during regular business hours;
  • The Eagle Valley Pharmacy located inside the Vail Valley Medical Center will accept all non-DEA controlled substances during regular business hours. (970-479-7253);
  • Edwards Pharmacy located inside the Shaw Pavilion will accept all non-DEA controlled substances during regular business hours. (970-569-7676)
  • The Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Wolcott will accept all non-DEA controlled substances during regular business hours. (970-328-3468). The facility is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Call 970-328-3468 or visit www.eaglecounty.us/recyclingwaste for information.
