La Veta Judicial Updates

Published by at 3:40 am under General Information

Well a couple of District Court cases involving the Town of La Veta  had rulings last week.   

The Town was dismissed from any  judicial review procedure involving the Trustee recall petition.  The Court further ruled that there was still not sufficient info. to make a ruling on the overall case brought by the recall committee plaintiffs.  Judge asked the remaining parties to file a new response before he enters a final ruling on the merits of the petition.

And a 3-judge Appeals panel has ruled in favor of  the Town of La Veta, affirming that the Town  never actually legally effected the annexation of Grandote Peaks Golf Course in 1985.  Grandote had sought to get an opinion that overturned the Town’s position but that has evidently now been dismissed.  Apparently any annexation attempts would now have to begin all over.

    Any chance the town and Grandote can work together to improve their relationship in these tough times, or are we back to square one? The folks in Cuchara seem to understand that a little growth wont kill your way of life, and might even improve things. Look forward to spending time in your valley this summer.

    I am excited about the happenings in Cuchara. The Mtn. Resort, the Timbers and the Cuchara Inn all adding new energy. Hopefully that can become contagious down in La Veta.
