Donations for site visits have always been welcomed in previous year and have been so much appreciated. There have never been site visit fees in the past. However, with budget cuts and the rising cost of gas, it will be necessary for us to begin charging a nominal fee for each site visit. If a site visit can be scheduled on the day the agent is in your county’s office, then there will be a $5 in-town visit or $5 plus mileage for outside city limits. If a site visit is requested outside the date he is scheduled for your county, or before or after the dates of June 1 through September 1, then there will be a $5 fee plus mileage from the Holyoke Office. Any lab tests would be over and above the site visit fee.
Please call the local Extension office in your county to schedule a site visit appointment. To access information, events, workshops and even area alerts, please visit the Golden Plains Area Extension Website at http://GoldenPlains.ColoState.edu.
