Steamboat briefs: Parks and rec staff set to hold Yampa River meeting

Pilot & Today staff

— The city of Steamboat Springs Parks and Recreation Commission will hold a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Steamboat Springs Community Center to discuss last year's regulation monitoring, education and enforcement efforts on the Yampa River. The commission directed city staff last year to work with volunteers to address concerns expressed by the public about impacts — including trash, illegal parking and alcohol consumption — from a variety of river uses. Wednesday's meeting will review last year's efforts and discuss efforts for 2010. Call 879-4300 for more information.
