You may already know that on July 15, the IRS will start sending out monthly credits to families with children, up to $300 per child per month depending on their age and your income. If you’re a couple that earns less than $150,000 or a single parent (that files taxes as a head of household) that earns less than $112,500, you should qualify for the full credit.
Families earning more than that should still receive some money, but the amounts get smaller the more you make.
What does Montrose think? Will the credits make a big difference for you? Do you think more than just families should be receiving assistance (such as another stimulus)? Is it a fair credit?
Hi everyone, recently I had an inquiry about the Basecamp Apartments following my article on the MURA Phase II Public Infrastructure project (you can read it here). Currently, there are no plans for designated senior housing in this development, but after a call with City Engineer Scott Murphy today, he believes there may be a few private developers interested in focusing on senior housing. While this hasn't been confirmed yet, I'll continue to follow the story and keep you updated!
Hi everyone, I'm working on a story for the proposed Initiative 16 bill (The PAUSE Act--Protect Animals from Unnecessary Suffering and Exploitation) and am having conversations with local farmers and ranchers, as well as State Rep. Marc Catlin, to hear their perspective on the proposal. Would anyone like to share their thoughts, perspectives and/or points on the bill that may appear on the November 8, 2022 ballot? The details of the bill can be read here.
Hi everyone! Here's a brief excerpt from my upcoming piece today on the "Little Blue" project. The story will cover the plans for the two parts of the project, the plans for cell coverage in the construction zone for sitting traffic, and the immediate and future impacts/benefits of construction.
Does anyone have any thoughts, concerns or plans for the upcoming April 19 closures?
Here’s what to know
Location: Mile points 123—127
Closures: Full roadway closures will be Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Full roadway closures will occur through the night Monday–Thursday 7:30 p.m. – 6:30 a.m.
Plan your travel around the opening windows and be prepared to queue at designated areas.
Weekends will allow for full passageway with no restrictions or obstructions from the construction crew.
Rumble strips are being put in place to slow drivers down as they approach the sharp turns.
When open during the week, the road could be brought down to one lane, such as near the bridge on the west end of the project.
Hey everyone! I'm a staff writer with the Montrose Daily Press. I'm working on a story that will take a look into the 1918 pandemic in Montrose and how it compares to now. Does anyone have stories from relatives who experienced or heard about the 1918 pandemic? Any sources, resources or close anecdotes will be a great help, thank you!
