Ray Birch says he'll still be part of the Hayden community
Ray Birch's new job will include helping with a review of the Routt County Sheriff's Office’s policies and procedures and helping with grant writing. “I love this town, and I love this community,” he said. “This might sound a little corny, but I think of it more as them not losing a chief but gaining an undersheriff."
