Steamboat briefs: Commissioners to meet with Oak Creek Town Board


Commissioners to meet with Oak Creek Town Board

The Routt County Board of Commissioners will meet with Oak Creek residents and the Oak Creek Town Board at 7 p.m. today at Oak Creek Town Hall. The gathering is part of the commissioners' chat series around the county.

Oak Creek town trustees said at a meeting last week that they hope to use the meeting to discuss policing options for Oak Creek, including a possible contract with the Routt County Sheriff's Office to provide coverage for the town for a fee.

This is the second year of the commissioners' chat series. The first session was May 11 in Steamboat. Future sessions are planned for 7 p.m. June 1 at the North Routt Preschool in Clark and 7 p.m. June 2 at Hayden Town Hall.

Routt County United Way Day of Caring is Wednesday

Routt County United Way is coordinating the 13th annual Day of Caring from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday. The Ski Town Lions Club is providing lunch for all volunteers.

The Day of Caring provides an opportunity for people of all ages, throughout Routt County, to show they care by participating in a variety of projects that help local nonprofit groups, the elderly, disabled and less fortunate.

This year, about 150 volunteers are signed up to work on more than 40 local projects. Additionally, a food drive for the LIFT-UP of Routt County Food Bank is from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Safeway and City Market. Also, the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant is donating 10 percent of Wednesday proceeds to Routt County United Way.

There is still time to volunteer for Day of Caring projects. Call Routt County United Way at 879-5605 for more information.
