I would guess that The chain question. I don't think that's been officially released. Although i've seen the accurate information in the media will probably have to do a little bit of retrofitting. but it's not as though they're starting scratching building.

And they say that program has to be completed before they begin the official on the record talk about raising interest rates. And they say the cutting back in that bond.

The fed left its short-term borrowing rate near zero as expected but it moved its forecast of when rates they think will be raised from twenty twenty four back to twenty twenty three. The fed raised its inflation forecast from two point. Four to three point four percent and continued to say that current inflation numbers are transitory. And we've had that discussion with you.

"That done and it sounds like they're going to get something done with the hughes property but you know as as community scroll there are more of these types of issues fort collins is about one hundred sixty five thousand people so you know it's a community not really not not unlike our's where you're going to have these lands issues that are going to spring up on occasion. Well the land use issues as well as More diversity i think in the people gra Moving into fort collins. We're talking with greeley mayor. John gates at the moment and Were you a little surprise. As at at stu how many progressive ideology Candidates were elected and a progressive ideology. Measures were passed in fort collins on this and the city election actually not not at all I saw things Progressing that way Liked it or not. That's the way that community headed and the voters most like it The move towards the more progressive stance but I was not surprised to see that occur and it actually seen some signs of that. I'm not necessarily. Don't misunderstand me them saying that's a bad thing it's just Kind of how. Some elected officials are and the stances they take politically and then the beliefs that their particular constituents have about That type of progressives versus non progressive nature really as a community that would probably boy different stances on that but the fact that it went that direction. Four calls actually didn't surprise me at all. I would've been surprised at gone. The other direction as northern colorado continues to grow we see the borders boundaries between windsor and tim nathan severance and fort collins loveland greeley. They all start to shrink Do you expect that type of thinking to make its way east as we continue to see the growth kind of head that way. Yes i do You know they are Some communities you mentioned are somewhat landlocked there. Obviously not not entirely landlocked but of the four communities of really for 'cause level windsor We are by far. Have the most Room to grow boundary to grow. And so i think our growth will surpass all of them not necessarily because That we have more room. But you still have to look at things like Cost of living and median home price and all ours just went up a little bit as we knew that it would..

It's pretty widely used in arizona california and it's a provides a little better system than than we have right now although what we have is good with our mountain streams this is going to be a great system to augment that so certainly not a new concept. That's good to hear now. There were two members of Greeley water and sewer and correct me. If i'm not a naming that particular entity that the right way but to firmer employees That had concerns about the water quality. The top of mind. It seems just off the top of my head Concerns about uranium in the water. Did adam address that as well. Yeah that's been addressed pretty substantially over a long period of time. You know what what came out. Initially was that There had been some of your any of detected which as we know now is not unusual and water supply and found rather quickly through A number of tests that the small amount of uranium could be filtered out Real easily the fact is that signed. Scientists and engineers told us that the water was to drink right now even without Century in that out but of course we are going to filter that out to our filtering plant and the water that That folks no is really great national award a couple of years ago. will not the decline at all in quality. That's the promise that will make moving forward. That's right because we've got award winning water right here in greeley. We don't want to sully that reputation right mayor and we won't. We'll continue to have award winning water there now. There were also some concerns about Miss missile silo Some runoff i believe from a missile silo Pollutants from a nearby missile site in wyoming. But those concerns were found to be Rather unfounded We looked at that just like we looked at every other issue that came up and and that particular factor was pretty good about. So where does it go from here. So we're we're This is not going to benefit any of us right now. This is really geared to the future. So we'll we'll start working on the whole project but Folks need to know that our water will come from our mountain reservoir for substantial time to come we. We're in the shape that we are now primarily because pioneers deputy far we had his son on that this zoom last night it was pretty interesting but he set us up for where we are now and what this city council and water board is really doing is setting greeley up for the future so this is.

So tough situation Hopefully, we're almost through that and of course, additional searches perhaps what made more but that's the absolute last thing that we want to do. Mayor have we been doing you know city wise economically speaking because I know that's been one of the main concerns and obviously was one of the biggest hits was our local economy. How do you see things trending? Well. They're trending really well, right now and we had our finance the employees set up about three scenarios for. What could happen and then the worst case scenario with regard to. To budgetary loss. You'll win that ten percent range it. But. We're GONNA be okay. We are just getting presented. I got reading to do this week. Then we received Dr Twenty Twenty one budget Today we'll be going over that the piecemeal beginning Tuesday night.

We've been conservative with the amount of money that we've saved and. we have about forty, five, million dollars in reserves so. we're in pretty good shape. Could we have done without Kobe most certainly? we're we're going to recover just fine. Yeah and mayor.

District sex is Kinda what happened is. Is Pretty much what we expected that the covert concept is really good because we've had to quarantine a number of of number cohorts and I believe nine different throughout the district now so that the advantage to that is it's not having to team a hundred people.

What really good I'll say what I've said for months, we're not out of the woods, but I would suggest that a numbers are taking over the fact.

"Good conversation there with Mayor John Gates appreciate his time as always. And Hope, everybody else did the same thing for the July weekend. Yeah sales were ridiculous all the way through. Greeley Shan, I'm sure and that's well. He talking about illegal firings. A lot of people go up to Cheyenne and get the big ones that will go off and so. I know that there's a lot of people who were doing that as well, but hopefully everybody was safe, and it seems like it was a pretty uneventful fourth of July which which. Nowadays is Pretty Pretty Nice to have right. There's no big stories that are breaking right off the bat. There's nothing crazy going on happy to have it. On the third of July, president trump gave a while he gave a rally address to supporters in front of. Mount Rushmore and I thought that I thought it was a very unique and very well patriotic setting in front of Mount Rushmore and the president had a lot to say a lot to get off his chest and. Well. Let's just let's play around. Let's play this clip here. Tonight to herald the most important day in the history of nations, July fourth, seventeen, seventy six. At those words, every American heart should swell with broad. Every American family should cheer with Delight, and every American. Patriot should be filled with joy. Because each of you lives in the most magnificent country in the history of the world. And it will soon be greater than ever before so obviously. You're going to get some campaign rhetoric, right? We knew that was going to be the case. because let's keep in mind even with everything else going on here, It's still an election year like I just mentioned in Joe Biden and President trump and president donald trump are going to be running against each other here in a very short amount of time He went on eighty kind of went on a little bit of for lack of a better term history lesson.

"And that all the schools that maybe some would not wanNA play, so they might have to alter schedule, but I would say cautiously all systems ago at this point. Yeah that's I. Mean that's encouraging in and of itself speaking with Greeley Mayor John Gates of course, a great friend of the show Mayor Fourth of July weekend I. Know that there is a lot of nerves about people getting out and about. But it seems like according to everything that I've heard people I've talked to that. People handled the fourth of July weekend in Greeley and the surrounding areas pretty responsibly. It sure seems like they no indication otherwise. which commenting to a friend short time ago that I hope folks are out of fireworks. It was quite hectic year for the big loud blasts and we did. Make it through in Greeley to my knowledge at least without an injuries or property damage, you always are concerned about those with with the heavier duty fireworks, but All all went well in in our city over the weekend. You've been you've been a part of Greeley for some time now mayor did have you ever had a fourth of July weekend, or even like two or three weeks leading up to it where you? You heard so many fireworks? No I I. This is the worst year I've seen in. Folks are enjoying themselves. I understand that and. The police were running ragged, trying to keep up with the calls cause. As, much as fireworks or celebration of independence, they can be annoying when they go off the all hours of the day and night. But this. This certainly was a unique. weekend fortunately for those in Greeley. The greatest country. Club had a great professional display in the greatest stampede had a great professional sports, so that gave our folks opportunities to see professional displays from afar where they didn't have to get up close and personal with people, so, but it is A. Unique. Times to say the way standard well, mayor we, Sir to hopefully had out of those unique times at least start to trudge forward. What's next? What are some of the biggest obstacles facing the city of Greeley? Well I think the biggest obstacle that we continue to face this trying to get our hands around. Budgetary impacts of Kobe. It's significant, but to this point not quite as significance would plan you know most most municipalities in school districts for that matter had to cut millions of dollars from their budget and we did as well. But are some of our sales. Tax Revenues would indicate. and are watching texts.

It's been an interesting couple of months, and as we know, and we've been talking our way through this mayor, but things starting to open back up a little bit now. Can you update us on where the city of Greeley stands regarding Cova Nineteen? Certainly we're We're really doing well with covert number standard You know we're watching. Those numbers pretty closely based on all the surges. Seem, to be occurring in other states and We're not not seeing those in Greeley. Well County we're. We're thankful for that. To solve are positive numbers went up a little bit. Intimidated with many many more increased tests, but as a community doing really well with it I. Think people are still being careful.

Interview With Mayor John Gates On Partial Reopening

"Com by really mayor John Gates Mayor Gates welcome back to the show. Good to be with you good morning to you. I certainly appreciate your taking the time and there's a lot going on. As Greeley of course, as other cities across the state, indeed across the nation, enjoying a return to some semblance of normalcy. Tell us what that looks like. Well you're right. There is some sense normalcy the fact that where we get the restaurants back open. At least to an extent, you know pretty pretty well, said all along that the two entities that have really suffered from the Kobe closures are restaurants and churches. And the church is still are suffering, unfortunately, due to the fifty person rule, but My wife and I've been out several times since we've been able to sit down and Dine I. Guess It's the small things you appreciate because that surely has been nice. It's kind of fascinating when you think about it because we were talking about this just last week, the fact that going out to a restaurant is like. Taking a world cruise or taking a trip to the moon. Again it is a return to the small things that makes such a difference in in our lives. If there's any good, take away from all this. Maybe that's that. Makes, you appreciate the small things never did. I think I would miss. so much being able to go, sit down, have a cup of coffee with somebody or better yet a meal and while we certainly a lot of carry out. It's not the same as going to sit in a restaurant and catching up on the day and getting warm food versus the. Wolf lukewarm food when the carry out outcome, so that's where they've been great and. I were phone boxes here. Exactly, the Styrofoam box and we're starting to get things open back up the city to the degree that we can which is good. There's a slow rollout occurring today with our fixed up transit buses We're opening municipal court backup today. we've got some Other departments opening drive through or by appointment only so slowly, but surely not quite yet on the cool. The REC centers part of the problem with the pool. and. Even the REC centers is that we've got that fifty person maximum. And we talked a great wink at our city council meeting last night about specifically centennial pool and the to dilemmas. We have one is that we saw that is that at the beginning of this laid off all her stuff seasonal swig. We can obviously get some of them back. To run the pool, but our parks and REC. Director colors that we get. During Summer Day especially these that have been so warm three to four hundred kids centennial pool every day, so if we can only it fifty. That's problematic so while I understand the reason for that in an area that says large as as much square footage of centennial pool. I hope the governor loosens that fairly soon to allow us to adapt at number to a more appropriate number which folks we might be having using them so. Now. We're looking forward to. If I'm not mistaken here under this amended safer at home order, a swimming pools again allowed to reopen. Once those draft guidelines are improved. Final draft of those guidelines will be available on Thursday. Is that what you're hearing is absolutely what I'm hearing. Yeah, so. we're. We're kind of sitting at the ready waiting for some of those. Things to happen I've been A number of local pastors have reached out to me and we feel for them from the standpoint that I spoke to a pastor yesterday. WHO said you know I have eight hundred people in my congregation and I can easily socially distance and keep everybody safe by allowing four hundred in, but the current rules only allow fifty, so they're looking at some things like outside and. And they're really getting the short end right now at a time when people may be more than ever need to services of their church and their pastor, so we're. We're getting there. probably not as quite as quickly as I'd like. We are starting to make some open or Kobe. Numbers really leveled out that we're really happy about that. And what about Jay BS? Swift the meat processing plant in Greeley. What are you hearing about that up? Not very much they're not, they're not yet at full capacity of I'm hearing they've not had any deaths and knock on wood in a couple of weeks. I don't know to what degree they have employs out sick, but. It was certainly tragic. Losing the workers they did and I hope everybody's. Certainly getting better and have not heard anything to the contrary. Now back to restaurants, and again we've talked about this to a great extent, because our return to daily life and living space to lot upon our confidence level, so I'm curious as you've been eating out at restaurants. Are you seen? folks coming to restaurants and being comfortable enjoying the opportunity to just get out and dine again. I I absolutely have The restaurants that that I've been to certainly the restaurants who are following the rules doing everything right there, socially distancing their staffs. Geared up with the appropriate PP HE I. Know People personally and I've seen some commentary from others that said. There's just no way we're ready to go out right now and that that's totally fine. It's the person ought to be able to make some personal choices in life, and for those that aren't comfortable going out that's certainly a decision that they or their families should make I my family is comfortable, going out while adhering to. safety guidelines, but they've not been packed. Of course. The law would know rats that the restaurants that I've been to have certainly had decent amount of people and The restaurant tours is really doing a great job complying with. What they've been asked to comply with so very pleased at this point. What about expansion not only patio dining. Using additional space around restaurants if it indeed is available that seems to be a point of some conversation and debate. It does end up. Council fully supports. A business whether they're downtown or another parts of Greeley the opportunity to expand their turning footprint. It's a what easier for them to do. Downtown because the city owns the real estate Some of the restaurants that aren't downtown are going to have to seek permission from whoever owns the property to expand out, but that doesn't fact gives them the opportunity. To seat more, we've been working closely with the downtown restaurant tours to expand their footprint which would involve alcohol service and be able to get more customers. Be Able to make Starts get back on our feet again financially. And there's. An ordinance pending that would allow the areas on the ninth street plazas to be open container areas. Temporary so. Something I think the council doesn't WANNA do year round Norwood, the restaurant tours in the middle of winter want people to be sitting outside, but it is perhaps not an opportunity for the period from about now until Labor.
