Here's an extended interview with recently hired Paonia Town Manager Jane Berry. 

Berry talks with KVNF's Jake Ryan about the town's 2015 budget, the costs of the embezzlement, projects the Paonia is undertaking, and plans for how to get it back on track. 

The Paonia Town Council held a contentious study session on next year’s approximately $2 million dollar budget last week, with declining revenues pushing a host of competitive agendas. 

Tax revenues have fallen all over the western slope, said Elyse Ackerman, regional manager of the Department of Local Affairs, or DOLA, who attended the session.

 “The whole western slope is seeing a secondary dip happening,” Ackerman says. “If you talk to Mesa County, Montrose County, everyone’s kind of seeing it. The question is why, why is that happening again?”
