This Week in Pics

We are proud of the Child Welfare Division for being recognized by the State of Colorado for Timeliness of Immediate Initial Response to Abuse and Neglect Assessments. Mesa County Child Welfare has consistently performed above the 90% goal established by the state since February 2016. C-Stat awards are presented to counties to celebrate and distinguish top C-Stat performers across CDHS and its partners. Pictured above, Mesa County Department of Human Services Child Welfare Director Kari Dagget receives the outstanding C-Stat Award from Colorado State Department of Human Services Director Reggie Bicha.
Grand Valley Transit (GVT) provides safe, reliable, and friendly transportation to the urban areas of Mesa County. Driver Jim Vidmar is pictured here with two of his passengers who are headed to work on Route 1. The passengers said they are thankful for GVT because it takes them everywhere they need to go at a fraction of the price it would cost in a personal automobile or taxi. If you are interested in riding the bus but you don't know how, GVT is holding a Learn to Ride program this Saturday, November 11 from 9:30-11:30am. Complete details at http://gvt.mesacounty.us/
