Steamboat briefs: Commissioners meetings slated for Mondays, Tuesdays







The Routt County commissioners meet at 10:30 a.m. Mondays and Tuesdays in the historic Routt County Courthouse, 522 Lincoln Ave. in Steamboat Springs, except for holidays. Monday meetings are labeled work sessions and many discussions are preparation for a Tuesday session on the same subject, when a formal vote may take place.

Agendas for both days can be viewed at the county website at co.routt.co.us under the "Your Government" heading the Friday before the meetings. Tuesday agendas typically include links to PDF documents containing detailed information about the agenda item.

Routt County also provides a way for residents to listen live to Tuesday meetings by calling into them at 970-870-5499.
