Council Completes Annual "Retreat"
The Loveland City Council completed their annual retreat at Group Publishing that included
meals with spouses at Centerra's
Bent Fork restaurant.  The City Clerk was prompt in
posting the notes from the meetings which are
available online.  The Council did go into
closed session to discuss further property annexations along I-25.  Capital improvements,
future projects and attracting new business were among the items discussed during the
two days of meetings but most topics were referred to standing committees for further
consideration.  See the
Reporter-Herald and Loveland Connection stories regarding the
retreat.  Both stories concentrate on the economic development portion of the meeting.

City Appointed Volunteers Want New Council Liaison

Loveland Councilwoman Carol Johnson received a letter Thursday by

could not ask you to remain on the Loveland Historic Preservation
Commission as liaison."
The letter marks possibly the first time in
Loveland's history that a member of the City Council has been asked to
cease their liaison role at the request of the volunteers.
