Cell Tower Antennas

Published by under General Information

Several La Veta residents with AT&T Comnet cell phones have recently reported greatly improved reception.  But those of us on Alltel or Verizon have mixed results.  Mayor Schmidt reports that all antenna fees have been paid but the Town does not know what carriers are functioning or plan to operate off the water tower antennas.

Fire totally destroyed the Paradise Acres mountain cabin of Jerry & Cheryl Park last week.  The Parks were at their winter home in Arkansas at the time of the fire.  Firefighters from La Veta Fire Protection District responded but the cabin was a total loss.  Cause of the evening blaze has yet to be determined.

La Veta Water Lines

Published by under Local News Affairs

This week is nearing completion of the new water pipelines for La Veta residences.  This huge project will have replaced all the old water lines in town.  Homes and business have dealt with the construction inconvenience for several months now but usually no more than one block of traffice closed off at a time.

Grandote Peaks Subdivision

Grandote Peaks and Town of La Veta may have finally settled several of the contentious issues between the two.  The Town has recognized that the existing Grandote lots are indeed within the Town Limits.  Town has also agreed that this means they will provide road maintenance on the existing primary corridors.  Grandote is now going before the Town (not the County) seeking approval of final plat for ten additional lots, including some duplexes.

Snow Flurries?

Published by under General Information

After over a week with temperatures reaching well into the 50’s, snow flurries are predicted for Monday.  Cuchara reports 131 inches snowfall to date this winter, which is about 1/2 way to our historical average for the entire Season.  La Veta seems well below average to date.  We all know that Feb./Mar. are our snowiest months of the year.  And if it doesn’t start snowing soon, the hay farmers and ranchers will be curtailed on their summer irrigation ditch water.  So, let it snow.
