Memorial Day Services abound in our region, the call is out for workers in Cortez, access to Downtown Cortez has changed, and a bike tour of Conservation Lands is coming up. You're watching the Local News Roundup, brought to you by Southwest Health Systems and FASTSIGNS. I'm Connor Shreve. Multiple Memorial Day Services will be held on Monday, May 29th. A sunrise service by the American Legion Ute Mountain Post 75 will begin at 6:00 AM at the Cortez Cemetery. Breakfast will be served at 7:00 at the American Legion Hall. Montezuma County Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5231 will conduct Memorial Day Services at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Mancos at 10:00 AM. Members of the public are welcome at both events. The Cortez Recreation Center needs workers. The rec center has been keeping odd hours lately due to staffing shortages, and it is on the lookout for employees to be able to start staffing normal hours again. You can see available jobs and work descriptions online. Visit cortezco.gov/jobs. The City of Cortez has installed a barrier at the end of North Adams Street. That's a dead-end street south of Montezuma Avenue and east of City Market. Because North Adams Street was being used as an unauthorized through street to access Main Street across private property, which ended up causing too much traffic on a dead end residential street. The barrier does still allow for pedestrian, bicycle, and ADA access to the adjacent property. Please contact the City of Cortez Public Works Department for any further information. Montezuma Land Conservancy's Next Generation Advisory Board will host a group bike tour of Cortez area conserved lands on Thursday, June 1st, starting at Montezuma Park in Cortez at 5:30. An after-ride party will take place at WildEdge Brewing Collective. It is a free event, but donations will be accepted. To RSVP and learn more, visit the Montezuma Land Conservancy Facebook page.
