To the Citizens of the Town of Palisade,

The Board of Trustees and I know that we are all going through uncharted times. We want you all to know that the Town has been in contact with Mesa County Public Health daily and have been following all State and County suggestions on the ways to keep everyone healthy.

Things that each and every one of us can do in our daily lives is to keep our space distance, wash our hands, and above all, know that we will come out of this. We at Town Hall understand the anxiety that we have at present and are working through all of the options that are before us.

Know that the Town Board and staff are working for you during this time of unknowns.

Thank you, and stay well.

Mayor Roger Granat

This is the latest plan with comments from the Governor – Mesa County Plan is different from the State.

It reflects the needs of the county.  There will probably be one more version by Monday.

A message from DOLA: Emergency assistance now available

Emergency funding is now available for rent and mortgage assistance to low-income families facing financial hardship due to economic disruption associated with COVID-19.

The Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), Colorado Division of Housing (DOH) awarded funding from Colorado’s Disaster Emergency Fund allocated through Governor Polis’ Executive Order D 2020 012 to 18 partner agencies. Two agencies will provide assistance to eligible Coloradans in all 64 counties: Salvation Army and Brothers Redevelopment.

DOH established a new online mapping tool to help Coloradans identify the entity providing emergency funding in their location. We are also encouraging applicants to go through 211 as additional or alternative resources may be available.

In order to qualify for assistance, households must have earned below 50% of the Area Median Income for their county prior to March 11, 2020. Income guidelines are available here.

In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Town of Palisade has been working with the County Health & Emergency Response Department to plan in case of a pandemic outbreak.  The Police, Fire, and Emergency Services departments have protocols in place to keep themselves and our citizens safe, and with Governor Polis's emergency designation, we have access to the necessary supplies to equip our personnel.  We are also working with the region's Utility providers to ensure collaboration and uninterrupted services.  

With the first confirmed case in Mesa County, this necessitates limiting access to public buildings and putting in place policies to protect staff.  Rest assured, these measures are preventative, and Palisade is working alongside our County governments to keep our citizens safe.  At this point, it is important that we all follow the advice of the CDC and Mesa County Health Department, https://health.mesacounty.us/.  Social distancing and attention to hygiene will help minimize the spread of COVID 19. 

UPDATED Saturday, March 14, 2020

The Town of Palisade is working with regional and state agencies to monitor and be prepared for any outbreak that might occur of the COVID-19 virus in Mesa County.  It is most important that citizens stay informed and follow the protocols recommended by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as explained and continually updated on Mesa County Health Department site, https://health.mesacounty.us/covid19/. Remember, wash your hands, keep your hands away from your face, stay in if you are sick and contact your doctor if your symptoms get worse.

 Everyone is doing all they can right now to stay safe and healthy.  To help limit interpersonal contact, which will help slow the spread of the virus, please remember that The Town of Palisade offers online payment options for utility bills and traffic citations at www.townofpalisade.org.
