Breckenridge woman dies at age of 52

BRECKENRIDGE – A Breckenridge woman was found dead in her Gold Creek condo Wednesday evening, Breckenridge police officials said.

The woman was identified as Denise Sexton, 52, of Breckenridge.

Medics from the Red, White and Blue Fire Department tried to resuscitate the woman but were unable to revive her.

Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson declined to say what a Feb. 10 autopsy revealed, but police officials said preliminary indications show the cause of death to be an accidental overdose of prescription medicines. Richardson said she would release the results of a toxicology report when it is available sometime in the next two weeks.

Dillon hosts open house for comments on sign code

DILLON – Dillon’s sign code, last revised in 1996, is due for an update. The town will begin that process during a 6 p.m. open house Wednesday at Dillon Town Hall.

Town officials urge local residents to offer feedback during the open house, including complaints and concerns about existing situations. The sign code also addresses the lighting of signs.

Those comments will be taken to the town’s planning commission, who will revise the plan and send that draft to the council. The revisions and approval of the updated plan likely will be finished by April.

“We’ve had some consistent comments from the businesses about problems with the sign code,” said town planner Theresa Worsham. “We thought it was a good time to make it a little more user friendly.”

Anyone who wants to submit comments but can’t attend the open house can outline concerns in a letter and mail it to Dillon Town Hall at P.O. Box 8, Dillon, 80435.
