Durango cuts paper to save money
DURANGO, Colorado – Durango expects to save $24,000 by cutting out the paper and time needed to print and distribute paper agendas for city meetings. The agendas for meetings of the City Council, planning and review boards and their study sessions will be available online.
City Clerk Amy Philips at a meeting this week said the city consumed 40,000 pages last year as it produced 14 agendas per week for 56 meetings.
Durango faces a $1 million budget shortfall this year despite trimming $2.9 million so far. Officials are proposing asking city employees to take four unpaid furlough days off work.
