Town Resets Meetings, Deadlines

The following update was also provided to residents from the Town Of Saguache Trustee Lovato regarding the day to day operations of Town business:


Attention Citizens of the Town of Saguache:

Yesterday morning, August 18, 2017, Leigh Mills resigned as interim clerk for the Town Hall. As mentioned in my last post, this will create days where the Town Hall will be closed. The Board is in the process of determining what steps need to be taken to get the Town Hall up and running again. You may see the Mayor and one Trustee (or) two Trustees at the Town Hall so we can open the doors and conduct business. The Board will be posting for a Town Clerk, I am hoping to get it in the papers on Wednesday and the following week.

The Saguache Town Hall will be closed Monday, August 21, 2017.

Because the advertisement for letters of interest was not posted in the Saguache Crescent, The Saguache Town Board meeting originally scheduled for Monday, August 21, 2017, has been cancelled. The deadline to submit letters of interest has been extended to August 30, 2017. With the intent to seat the new Trustees at the September 12, 2017 regular Board Meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact Luana Lovato.
