Commissioners talk money on Monday

Money matters will be on the minds of the Garfield County Commissioners Monday, Aug. 8, as they consider the county’s financial position in the first six months of 2005.

Finance director Patsy Hernandez will present financial reports from 2004. Also on the agenda is a report from county engineer Randy Withee on remediation of the Rifle County Shop. The county has conducted an expensive cleanup of the site because of a buried gasoline tank that leaked into surrounding soil.

At 10:15 a.m. Pat Tucker, from the Colorado Division of Wildlife in Glenwood Springs, will give the commissioners an update on the elk population in the area. The commissioners will also consider special-use permits for oil- and gas-related structures.

Monday’s meeting begins at 8 a.m. with an opportunity for anyone to go before the county commissioners. The commissioners meet in Room 100 of the Courthouse Plaza building, 108 Eighth St., in Glenwood Springs.
