There are about 12 miles of roads in the Retreat, 10 miles of them "primary". These are privately owned and maintained by the RLA Roads Committee.
We need a coordinator/contact person for the slash collection and chipping.
This job is to answer calls, arrange for check-out of the white trailer, and
coordinate with the Larimer County chipping program guy - they split the cost
with us if we do the right paperwork in a timely way. They have some criteria
for us to follow such as estimating the number of people who take their slash
there, pictures, and some easy-but-necessary paperwork and phone calls.
During the winter months, we need drivers for the yellow 4WD pickup with snowplow. This is early-morning work on days when the snowfall is deeper than 4". We try to have two operators, one primary and the other a backup, and they alternate each month or arrange it to meet their vacation schedules. The pickup is usually parked at your house during that month so you can get to it easily rather than having to drive from your house to the equipment barn by the firehouse. It pays $15.00 per hour.
Your neighbors appreciate it when you keep your speed below the limit of 20
mph. This also reduces the wear-and-tear on the roads and saves us all money.
Shifting into 4WD will help reduce the wash-boarding, particularly on the steep sections and curves.
It is essential that the roads are accessible to the snow plow, grader, and fire department equipment. For your safety and that of your neighbors, do not park on the roads. Guest’s vehicles can be parked along the road right-of-way, but only temporarily.
