Government update for April 8


Moffat County Commissioners

Last met: Tuesday


  • Commissioners voted to extend a sale agreement between the county and Steamboat Springs for a piece of property on the east side of Craig. The property will be used by Steamboat Transit for a park-and-ride bus terminal.
  • Commissioners voted to oppose a bill in the state legislature that would let voters decide whether to make county commissioners responsible for setting the salary of county elected officials. Commissioners said the bill would put a strain on the relationship between commissioners and other elected officials. Setting elected officials' salary should remain the responsibility of the legislature, commissioners said.
  • Commissioners approved personnel requisitions for housing, the cemetery and fairgrounds.
  • Commissioners approved a policy for pre-trip inspections of county vehicles.
  • Commissioners discussed the possible re-introduction of wolves into Rocky Mountain National Park. Commissioners oppose wolf re-introduction.
  • Commissioners approved a storm water runoff report for the Craig-Moffat County Airport.
  • Commissioners voted, 2-1, to allow budget analyst Tinneal Gerber and emergency manager Larry Dalton to discuss leasing space on the county's radio tower on Cedar Mountain to Amigo Net. Commissioner Darryl Steele voted against the motion after saying he would like to see Amigo Net lease property on its own.
