In a flash, flood threat abated thanks to help of many

Dear Editor,

We would like to take this opportunity to pass out a few thanks. After the recent flooding and evacuations in West Glenwood, we approached the county with our safety concerns for our little neighborhood.

We received minor flooding and mud flow in our yard, driveway and sidewalk. Our neighbor experienced minor flood damage in their home.

The cooperation and quickness of the county’s response following the flooding was greatly appreciated.

Those who responded and helped with our concerns and need to be thanked include Garfield County Sheriff Tom Dalessandri, Garfield County Emergency Management Director Guy Meyers, Mike Kishimoto and the office of Natural Resources Conservation Services for providing gravel and sandbags, and our friends who helped us with our sand-bagging duties – Kristi Shelton, Rod Pressler and Brooks Pressler.

Thank you all.


Dale Shrull and Donna Mabon-Shrull
