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.

La Veta Next-Door Deli Plans Expansion

Published by under General Information

Rumor has it that the Next Door Deli may be expanding. They are considering obtaining more indoor seating in front corner of the old Hardware/Gym at Main and Francisco. The Deli has been a fantastic popular alternative in La Veta for over a year now. Time to expand.

The Bakery Closes

Published by under General Information

Sad news that Mary and Adrienne are retiring. They plan to work less and play more. Thankfully, they will still be baking some breads and baguettes on a weekly basis, so get your orders in to them.
