On Tuesday, Sept. 7, the city of Glenwood Springs will close the Three Mile Creek Trail for the remainder of the summer and a portion of the fall in order to complete construction and paving of this segment. This closure will extend from the trailhead at Midland Avenue to the Roaring Fork River and extend northward along the river to the Cardiff Bridge. Upon completion of construction of this phase of the project, the city will reopen the trail for public use.

Officials are asking users to refrain from using the trail during construction activities. The city of Glenwood Springs appreciates citizens’ cooperation and will make every effort to complete the project and reopen the trail as soon as possible. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.

The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association’s 24th annual Issues and Answers Night will be on Tuesday, Sept. 7, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Glenwood Springs City Hall.

The community will have the opportunity to hear from Garfield County Commissioner candidates Tresi Houpt and Tom Jankovsky; Garfield County Assessor candidates John Gorman and Jim Yellico; and Garfield County Sheriff candidates Thomas Dalessandri and Lou Vallario.

Kathleen Curry, Luke Korkowski and Roger Wilson – candidates for Colorado House District 61- will be in attendance. Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes will provide a brief statement.

The public is invited to attend, and the event will also be broadcast live on Cable Channel 12. Ron Milhorn, news director of Colorado West Broadcasting/KMTS Radio, will moderate.

A media panel will question candidates, and questions from the audience will be accepted. League of Women Voters format will be used. This is the format used in presidential debates, where questions are alternated between candidates and candidates are given an allotted time to answer questions as well as an allotted time for rebuttal.

The event is co-sponsored by the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, Cable Channel 12, Colorado West Broadcasting (KMTS) and local State Farm Insurance agents, Jeff Leonard and Dee McCown.
