Beth Commissioner Beth Melton - February 2, 2020 Op-Ed: Our Economic Future  

What makes a strong economy? There are many factors, but today, I want to talk about one critical aspect: careful management of local resources and assets. In Routt County, I think we can all agree that our primary assets are natural resources and the people who live and work here.

Commissioner-Monger-600x900Commissioner Doug Monger- January 5, 2020 Op-Ed: Fiscal Responsibility 


Nothing that your local government does is more important than working on and adopting the next year’s budget/policy document. It is the New Year’s work plan mixed in with five- to 20-year projections of population, revenues and service levels, which was formally adopted Dec. 10, 2019.


Commissioner-Corrigan-600x900Commissioner Tim Corrigan- December 9, 2019 Op-Ed: The Importance of Our Public Safety Agencies 

I have always appreciated this direct and straight-forward mandate to our work at Routt County. The Routt County Board of Commissioners can have no higher priority than the safety of our residents and visitors. Our scenic location in the mountains means that wildfire, flooding, blizzards and other disasters are real possibilities.
