Commissioner Justman Meeting with Governor Hickenlooper

Today, Commissioner Justman meets with Governor Hickenlooper, as part of a meeting hosted by Club 20 being held in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

While at the meeting, Commissioner Justman will be providing the Governor with a request for Assistance with Stormwater Runoff from Federal Lands. The Mesa County Board of Commissioners signed a letter dated June 30, 2014, which states in part:

"We respectfully request that you bring this significant matter to the attention of, and encourage discussion between, the Washington, D.C. offices of the Department of the Interior, other federal agencies, the State of Colorado and the local governments affected by stormwater runoff from Federal Lands.

Mesa County proposes hosting a dialogue with federal lands agencies, including, but not limited to, the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service, as well as various local governments, in an attempt to receive active (monetary or project) contribution for maintenance and improvement of these drainage ways.

We also request that a continuing dialogue occur between the Colorado Department of Health and the Environment and local governments during the rule-making process on water quality regulations."
