The Town of De Beque and the De Beque Fire Protection District will be conducting a controlled pile burn below River Park on Thursday, December 2nd (weather dependent) beginning at 8:00 a.m.  The burn pile consists of tree clippings, leaves, and other yard waste.  It is normal to see or smell smoke beyond the project burn site.

We follow very strict guidelines and limitations that monitor fire danger and air quality to ensure project objectives are safely and effectively completed.

The next Board of Trustees meeting/Public Hearing will be held Tuesday, November 23rd at 6:00 pm at the Community Center.  Click here for agenda.

The next Planning and Zoning Commission meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 14th at 6:00 pm at the Community Center.  

The chip and seal has been put on hold due to inclement weather.  The final sweep and fogging are highly weather dependent. It must be dry and warm for these final steps.  As the project will move quickly once it starts back up, please continue to keep vehicles off the street until the project is finished.  The roads will be done when the fog coating (black tarry substance) has been laid.  Once traffic control has reopened the road, you may again drive on it.  Please be cognizant of your driving habits.  Make sure to use sweeping turns.  Sharp turns and such may damage the roads and may also kick up material onto your vehicle.  Be cautious as the town/county will not be responsible for debris on cars or driveways.  We will update as more information becomes available.  Thank you to the community for your patience and support.  Thank you to Mesa County for the work thus far.
