Groundbreaking Event For New Water Tower

Please join us on Tuesday, July 26 at 3:30 p.m. as we break ground on the Town's new elevated water storage tank. This new storage tank heralds a significant improvement to the availability, reliability, and water quality of the Town of Bennett's water supply. The tank will increase the Town's water storage capacity by over 25 percent, and significantly reduce our risk of water supply outages. It will improve reliable water pressure to our residents and businesses, and upgrade fire flows for the Bennett Fire Protection District. The tank will be visible from miles away, proudly serving as a new beacon of our community's pride and progress.

If you have any questions about the groundbreaking please contact Jose Rocha 303.644.3249 ext. 1007 or

Adams County Microloan Fund Receives $1 Million To Spur Small Business Growth

Adams County, CO  -  The Adams County Board of Commissioners, Adams County Economic Development (ACED), Colorado Enterprise Fund (CEF) and the North Metro Small Business Development Center have partnered to create the Adams County Microloan Fund with starting capital of $1 million, the largest in the metro area.  This program provides Adams County's small businesses access to capital for those who have difficulty obtaining financing from traditional sources but are capable of repaying debt. 

"Small businesses in Adams County have been the catalyst for landing the county among national leaders in job growth and new job creation," said Commissioner Steve O'Dorisio. "We're excited to support this new program to expand the options for small businesses that might have challenges working through the traditional loan process."

The Colorado Enterprise Fund matched Adams County's non-federally funded contribution of $500,000 creating the initial program value of $1 million.  Qualifying businesses can apply for loan amounts up to $50,000 maximum for five (5) years.  Loan applications will be reviewed by a committee of bank and financial professionals organized by ACED and approved or denied following CEF's standard procedures and processes.

"This is one of many steps we are taking to grow Adams County's economy," said Barry Gore, President/CEO of ACED.  "Access creates opportunities.  More financing opportunities for our local business community will promote growth, jobs, and support entrepreneurship!"

Businesses can apply directly to the Colorado Enterprise Fund or be referred by Adams County Economic Development members, banks, or from the Small Business Development Center.

Road Reconstruction Project Continues



Road work continues in Centennial and Antelope Hills. During the month of July, road construction will also begin in the Brothers Four and Cordella Estates neighborhoods. Please be advised that during construction, street parking may not be available on your street for a short period of time. We are working with our contractor to minimize the impact on residents and businesses.

If you have any questions or concerns about your home or business please ask those working on site or contact Randy Ficklin at (303)289-8555 or randyf@asphaltspecialties.com.

The schedule for this project is subject to change. Any concerns about this schedule may also be directed to Randy Ficklin.
