As state and federal politicians continue to struggle with balancing their budgets, local officials pledged to continue to streamline government services to ensure Moffat County stays in the black. Moffat County Commissioner Audrey Danner voiced that sentiment Friday night during the annual State of the County dinner at the Holiday Inn of Craig, 300 S. Colorado Highway 13. More than 80 people listened to Danner cite the loss of energy impact assistance grants — which at one time funded road, infrastructure and social service projects — as just one of the many signs of a struggling economy. And as the Feds and state legislators tighten their proverbial belts, Danner said the county must also get creative in how it continues to provide valuable services.
