Garfield County will renew its contribution of $650,000 for the Grand Hogback bus service operated between Rifle and Glenwood Springs by the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, the head of the bus agency said Thursday.

Garfield County is the only governmental entity in the valley that doesn’t belong to RFTA and support it through sales tax revenues. The members are Pitkin and Eagle counties as well as Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs and New Castle.

Nevertheless, Garfield County contributes financially through an intergovernmental agreement with RFTA. It contributed $614,000 for Grand Hogback service in 2010. That increased to $650,000 the following year and has remained at that level the last two years.

Colorado Mountain College: An article in the Jan. 3 Post Independent incorrectly described the authority of Jill Boyle at the college.

The CMC Board of Trustees has not yet determined an interim president for the college.

Following standard college policy, Senior Vice President Jill Boyle will have operational authority over the college until an interim president is appointed.
