Moffat County commissioners did the following Tuesday morning at their weekly meeting:

During general discussion:

• Thanked the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission for visiting Craig as part for their annual retreat.

Moffat County Commissioner Chuck Grobe, a member of the Air Quality Control Commission, said the other members of the commission enjoyed the area and had plenty of opportunity to know the community.

“They saw it first hand and they were impressed,” he said.

The commission had plenty of time to converse with each other, as well as the public.

On Thursday evening, the Air Quality Control Commission hosted a public comment meeting at Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion.

At the meeting the commission listened to the citizens of Craig and Moffat County voice their concerns about how air-quality regulations affect the local energy industry.

Grobe said outside of the retreat’s scheduled events, the commissioners had plenty of time to discuss their responsibilities amongst themselves.

“There was a lot of good discussion, economically as well as everything else, in our off hours,” he said.

On the agenda:

• Approved an underwriter agreement between Moffat County and George K. Baum & Co. to provide preparation of supporting data, underwrite bonds and other finical instruments at the lowest practicable interest rate and to assist in obtaining credit enhancement; or to serve as a structuring agent for privately place bonds.

• Signed a letter thanking Bill de Vergie, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, for the notice of the fee title purchase of the Charles, Tucker, Laimbock property.

According to the letter, “The Moffat County Commissioners support a private landowner’s ability to enter his own property into contracts that the landowner feels is of his benefit.”

• Hired Dolly Rose as the new director of Moffat County Social Services with compensation of $2,541.60 per pay period.

The county interviewed Rose twice, with Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, Craig Police Department and Moffat County School District participating in the selection process.

Keri Klein, the previous director, resigned in late May.
