The Parks and Recreation Department has promised Cortez businesses a 50 percent reimbursement for any beautification project they undertake this year, as long as they turn in their invoices by Sept. 30.
Palmquist said the city will work to get more businesses involved in the project, but because the parks department has a limited budget, it would need to request more funding if there’s a big demand for the program.
“It’d be nice if we could get eight or 10 businesses,” Palmquist said. “We have it in our budget to do that.”
