Opera house set for craft fairs

Encampment council approves free use of facility for craft shows, alcoholic beverage guidelines, supplies for fire dept.


The Encampment Town Council met at the Encampment Town Hall at 7 p.m. Financial statements and monthly bills were approved for payment. A glass door that was recently cracked was approved to be repaired as soon as possible.

The council approved a resident’s one-day use of the Opera House rent-free for three different Saturdays, one in October, November and December. Rent was waved because the resident is having a crafts fair open to town citizens and there is no profit being collected by the organizer.

“It will benefit the community, allowing the townfolk a way to sell their goods,” said Doreen Harvey, the town clerk.

Harvey said the town’s lawyer got back to her after the council had approved the liquor revisions for the town. There were amendments suggested. The council approved the first reading of the new guidelines of alcoholic beverages with the recommended amendments.

The fire department was approved $500 for safety supplies. Due to the death of David Erickson, the town’s lawyer, Mike Roberts, a lawyer who worked with Erickson, was approved to be the town’s new attorney.

The Carbon County Emergency Operations Plan was approved.

“It covers all the municipalities pretty much the same,” Cindy Hamilton, town council member said.

“It is pretty general,” Harvey said. “We do benefit from the funding received based on having that plan in place. It is just an update of what the council has signed off before.”

The council approved an ad for the Encampment High School yearbook.

The town hall front door was approved to be repaired for $610 by Cowboy Glass out of Laramie.

“The wind caught it and sprung the latch on top and swung it around and of course there is a rock wall right there with a little protrusion and broke that outside layer,” Harvey said. “We have been struggling to get somebody out here and repair it. Cowboy glass will come out, but we have to be on their schedule.”

A door stop will be installed to prevent that from happening again.

The council went into executive session on a consideration of contract negotiation. After 13 minutes, the council came back, sealed the minutes of the meeting and adjourned.

The next scheduled Encampment Town Council meeting is 7 p.m. Oct.12 at the Encampment Town Hall.
