LEGISLATIVE FIXES FOR DITCH COMPANIES
Monday, 17 February 2014

ImageLEGISLATIVE FIXES FOR DITCH COMPANIES


Please join us next week for the DARCA Pre-convention Workshop on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.

The all day workshop, Creating Efficiencies and Reducing Transaction Costs for Ditch Companies will cover a variety of topics including an afternoon session on Legislative Fixes for Ditch Companies. One of DARCA’s missions is to promote a more favorable legal and regulatory climate for its members so that mutual ditch companies spend less of their resources dealing with problems caused by urbanization, increasing population, and the resulting demand for water resources in Colorado. 

This workshop will explore pressing issues facing ditch companies and if these concerns are ones that should be addressed through the legislative process. The seminar will begin by Doug Kemper, Executive Director of the Colorado Water Congress, explaining how legislation pertaining to water resources becomes law at the General Assembly.  Next, the panel of water attorneys will ask the attendees to speak to their problems in running a ditch company, especially ones that seem to reappear and are on-going. The panel will be available to discuss if legislation may or may not be a good idea for a particular problem. The panel has many years of experience and will be able to share current and past legislative efforts.  It is anticipated that some of the problems may include easements and difficulties with oil and gas activity. The panel is asking participants to submit their concerns and ideas to the panel before the workshop. Please contact DARCA or any of the panelists with your ideas:

  • Brent Bartlett, Esq., Fischer, Brown, Bartlett & Gunn, P.C., Fort Collins
  • Stuart Corbridge, Esq., Vranesh and Raisch, LLP, Boulder
  • Jeff Kahn, Esq., Lyons Gaddis Kahn Hall Jeffers Dworak & Grant, PC, Longmont
  • Doug Kemper, Executive Director, Colorado Water Congress, Denver
  • Jim Witwer, Esq., Trout, Raley, Montaño, Witwer & Freeman, PC, Denver

CREATING YOUR OWN DITCH COMPANY WEBPAGE
Thursday, 13 February 2014

Hello DARCA Members Attending the 12 Annual Convention

Image If you are attending the 12th Annual DARCA Convention at the end of this month and are planning on attending the workshop, Information Technologies - Creating Your Own Ditch Company Web Page on Friday, Feb 28, there are a few steps to take prior to the event. This class will get you started in creating and maintaining a web presence for your ditch company.

First of all, please bring your laptop computer to the class. You will need to obtain a server to host your website, I recommend Bluehost (www.bluehost.com). Bluehost is reliable and economical with exceptional customer support. A Bluehost subscription is offered for $4.95/ mo. If you do not already have a domain, Bluehost provides you with a free one. You will probably spend some time picking a domain name that represents your company well, but you can always change the domain name later. Try to have your top level domain be “.com” or “org.” Having “.biz” or “.net” as your top level domain will not affect the construction of your website; however, “.com” is the most common and trusted.

The class will be using WordPress as the website builder. WordPress is one of the better pieces of software available and it is free. You can select WordPress when you register with Bluehost.

Please feel free to email me with your questions at: See you in a few weeks, Christian Gilmer DARCA Intern
