Donation secures new body cameras for police

Jim Loya couldn't have known it, but the timing of his love of Ouray and his support of law enforcement was impeccable.
Before he died, the longtime visitor to the area asked that some of his money be given to the Ouray Police Department. So on May 31, a family friend walked into city hall with a credit card number and a generous donation. His legacy will allow the department to purchase seven new body cameras.
"It was actually a big blessing," interim Police Chief Gary Ray said.
The donation, totaling more than $5,000, will allow the police department to make permanent a body camera trial period that was close to expiring.
"We were having a hard time getting the financing for them," Ray said. "We were actually trying to get grants and donations."

Plaindealer staff report
plaindealer@ouraynews.com

New trash cans designed to discourage bruins from Dumpster-diving have turned out to be a real bear, it seems.
Residents who received the new bear-resistant trash containers delivered by Waste Management this week quickly discovered the lids weren’t working as promised.
The entire shipment of new trash containers ordered for Ouray residential trash customers is defective due to a faulty closing mechanism, Waste Management of Colorado District Manager Dave Jones confirmed through a prepared statement released by the company on Tuesday. The company is returning the containers to the manufacturer, which has agreed to replace the trash carts.

Bearproof trash containers set for delivery to Ouray

Plaindealer Staff Report
plaindealer@ouraynews.com

Ouray residents will receive new bear-resistant trash containers starting Sunday, according to Waste Management.
The refuse removal company said it hopes to have all the containers delivered by mid-June to city trash customers.
A dedicated Waste Management team plans to deliver the new carts to homes. Upon delivery, residents are asked to begin using their new bear-resistant carts and stop using the previous carts. The new carts should be placed in the same location normally designated for trash pick-up, whether that’s curbside or in an alley, and set out as usual on regularly scheduled trash collection days.
“Providing our residents with bear-resistant trash carts is an initiative the city and Waste Management partnered on to help improve safety in the community,” said Justin Perry, interim city administrator for the City of Ouray.
