There is a vacancy on the Garden City Board of Trustees. To be appointed to a trustee position, you must be a resident of Garden City for at least the last twelve consecutive months, must be at least eighteen years of age, and be a registered voter.

PTSD Monument Unveiling Rescheduled to November 1, 2019 at Noon

The contractors building the block wall with the fundraising bricks have been doing an incredible job. Unfortunately, this type of work is new to them, and they didn’t realize it was going to be such a painstakingly slow process. It would have come in right under the wire if not for that crazy snow! Who knows what November 1st will bring in the way of weather, but the PTSD Monument will be a wonderful addition to Garden City regardless of the weather. We hope to see you there.

Land Use Hearing on February 5, 2019

There will be a Land Use Hearing on February 5, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Garden City Town Hall. The purpose of the hearing is for the Board of Trustees to hear the public’s opinion on Section 16-4-190. – Hours of operation (for a medical marijuana facility). The current Municipal Code states that  “A medical marijuana facility may operate between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and may operate during such hours seven days per week. (Ord. No. 06-2010, § 1, 7-20-2010; Ord. No. 03-2016, § 1, 3-29-2016)”

Currently, retail marijuana facilities can stay open until 8:00 p.m. It has been requested that medical marijuana facilities may keep the same business hours as retail marijuana, which means staying open until 8:00 p.m. rather than 7:00 p.m.

The Town Hall is located at 621 27th Street Road. If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall at 970-351-0041.

You can get to businesses on the east side of 8th Avenue from 7th Avenue. You can get to 7th Avenue from 25th Street or Business 85. Thank you for taking your time and ensuring the safety of the workers during this difficult time.
