Briefs for March 15


Extension Advisory Board seeks members

The Routt County Extension Advisory Board is seeking new members to serve a three-year term. There are five vacancies on the board.

The advisory board reports to the Routt County Board of Commissioners with ideas about what programs should be offered through the Colorado State University Cooperative Extension Service, as well as how the Extension Service is benefiting the community or how it could be improved.

The advisory board meets as many as four times a year to set priorities and goals, and to review the Extension Service's performance.

To apply for the board, send a letter of interest to the Routt County Commissioners by March 25. For more information, call Routt County Agricultural Extension Agent C.J. Mucklow at 879-0825.

Noxious Weed Advisory Board members needed

Volunteers for the Routt County Noxious Weed Advisory Board are needed.

The weed board gives input to the Routt County Board of Commissioners about which weeds should be on the county's noxious weed list, as well as on the county's weed control policy. The board meets at least two times a year.

Matt Custer, weed control supervisor for Routt County, estimates that there could be two openings on the six-member board.

Interested individuals must live in the county and have some knowledge about the county's noxious weed problems. Anyone interested can send a letter of interest by March 31 to Routt County Weed Management, P.O. Box 772830, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477.

Call Matt Custer at 870-5246 with questions.
