Around Mesa County: This week in pictures, July 17

Mesa County government is wide in its services and scope. From Elections to Road and Bridge to the Department of Motor Vehicles to Health to Human Services to the Commissioners and beyond, Mesa County is a diverse operation.

Check out some photos from this week:


The Mesa County Fair started Tuesday!

Mesa County Health Department Executive Director Jeff Kuhr addresses employees at the July 14 Quarterly All-Staff Meeting. During the meeting, Jeff welcomed new employees, recognized five employees for outstanding work, talked about safety and updated staff on Board of Health activities.

At the end of the Quarterly All-Staff Meeting, Shane Chatfield played host during Health Department Trivia. Teams are pretty competitive and it's a great, fun way for employees to gain an understanding of what their coworkers do everyday and what other programs are working to achieve.
