Plaindealer photo by Alan Todd

Ouray School fourth grade class went before Ouray City Council Monday night to propose construction of a sign for the fish pond at Ouray Hot Springs Pool. Class members took turns reading portions of the proposal. The sign will display a history of the fish pond, researched by the class. The class raised more than $600 for the sign. Just prior to the council unanimously approving the proposal, Mayor Pam Larson said, "I would like to commend the fourth grade for a great presentation." The class includes, from left, front: Hadley Choate, Ella Blu Vann, Jenna Williams, Brody Dickens; from left, middle: Aidan Sills, Cavan Pasek, Keaton Nelson, Brooke Edder; from left, back: Ella Skoloda, Abby Whittington. Not pictured are Conner Hill, Vera Jirnov and Luke Hughes. The text that will go on the sign is below.

City Hall evacuated for second time this week

For the second time this week, Ouray City Hall was evacuated Friday due to gas odors. Coupled with the gas odors, the city found that a boiler was malfunctioning and producing elevated carbon dioxide levels.

City Administrator Katie Sickles said the city was working Friday to repair the problem. "We have a vendor onsite and Black Hills Energy has also been dispatched," she said in an email to the Plaindealer, " regarding  the metal shavings that appear to be coming through the gas line from the main." Sickles sent a photo of some of the metal shavings that had been collected (attached).
