New La Veta Mayor

Published by under General Information

La Veta residents have elected Doug Brgoch Mayor. Doug had previously served as our Mayor for nearly 20 years before leaving office 8 years ago.  Hopefully mayoral runner-up Logan Taggart will continue to be active on the local scene by filling one of the several vacancies existing on the Board of Trustees. Our congratulations to Mayor Brgoch.

La Veta Marijuana still being considered.

Published by under General Information

La Veta Board of Trustees have again failed to ban sales of marijuana in La Veta.  Seems that a majority of Board feels banning is not a long-term solution, so regulation approval is the better course. Still no vote yet for outright Town Ordinance approval either, but no longer a moratorium on adopting one.  Huerfano County Commission holds public meeting next Wed. March 12 on similar measure.  Stay tuned.

Town Marshal Out

Published by under General Information

No Marshal in La Veta. By a split vote, Town Trustees have terminated our La Veta Marshal. Seems that the Marshal and Town Judge made some errant decisions regarding a DUI arrest and conviction. oops. Apologies were not enough to save his job. So, we are looking for a new Marshall this week.

La Veta Moratorium on Marijuana

Published by under General Information

La Veta Town Trustees have allowed the expiration of the moratorium on marijuana sales within the Town. It was not seen as an indication of future approval, but most agreed that they did not want to rush t0ward approving a new proposed Ordinance  before Huerfano County has finalized or LaVeta has completed regulations and zoning ordinances IF, any marijuana retail sales should be approved soon. Neighboring Walsenburg, Colorado has already voted to approve marijuana sales and is drafting their regulations at this time. La Veta says, not so fast. So any new Ordinance vote to approve MJ sales was tabled until another public workshop could be held later in the week.

Public attendance was light and Trustees questioned the citizen’s lack of input and MJ weed sales effect on youth or on tourism. Tax revenue was also debated in relation to Town cost of regulating and enforcement. So, at least one more additional planning session before any final determination vote.
