Important Information from Ignacio School District Superintendent, Chris deKay
Parents, Students, Community partners, and Ignacio School District Staff,
The Ignacio School District will be developing a 5 year strategic plan over the next several months. It is vital for the district to gather input and feedback from community stakeholders. The first element of the plan is a survey that will assess the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats within our school system. It is very important that you complete the following questionnaire. The survey window will close on December 10th, 2021. We will collect and analyze the data in late December. Starting in January, we will begin having public meetings to develop a mission statement and create a strategic matrix that we hope to have completed in June of 2022.
If you have not taken the survey, please do so by clicking on the link:
Thank you for your participation in this important survey and in the strategic planning process.

The Town phones are manned from 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday. Town Hall is now open to the public, 10 AM to 2 PM Monday through Friday. We ask that you wear a mask if you are coming into the office. We ask that you not come in if you are not feeling well, running a fever, coughing or sneezing. We look forward to serving you in person!
The Police Department continues to operate as usual. You can reach the Ignacio Police Department by calling 970-563-4206.
If you have a utility emergency, please call the on-call number (970-759-3660). The Public Works employee that is on call will assess the emergency and respond accordingly. If you have a utility billing or service question, please call Town Hall (970-563-9494) or email the Utility Clerk (email@example.com).
Utility Billing Update
The Town Board removed the waiver of utility billing late fees, disconnections and reconnect fees. Beginning in July, we will return to the standard Utility Billing Policy which states that late fees will be applied to any account with an outstanding balance on the 26th of the month. If your account remains delinquent, your utilities will be shut off on August 10, and you will need to pay the past due amount plus a $50.00 reconnect fee to have your utilities turned back on.
In order to assist with accumulated utility bills, the Town is offering a one (1) year payment agreement on past due accounts. Please Contact the Clerk/Treasurer for more information or to obtain an agreement.
