Just fix it

Dear Editor,
Just fix it!
Rocks to the windshield. Flat tires. Lost hub caps. Mag chloride stuck in my wheels. Suspension shot. Wheels out of alignment. Clamps missing from the exhaust system. Can’t even carry on a conversation driving down County Road 1 to Colona. The washboard is too noisy.
The cost to pave County Road 1 will be super cheap compared to the lawsuit arising from the first fatality. Where will you get the money then?  
Just fix it. Don’t tell us again, “We have no money.” Just fix it.

Abbreviated process

Dear Editor,
The Ouary Board of County Commissioners has scheduled a public hearing at 6 p.m. in the 4-H Center to consider adopting a revised version of Section 9 - Visual Impact Regulation of the County Land Use Code.

Threats to protections

Dear Editor,
For the past five years, there has been a major debate in our county about the visual impact regulations that are so appreciated for the beauty they have preserved.
It’s a long and complicated story but here’s the bottom line. The (Ouray County) Planning Commission traded a number of desirable protections along our major view corridors in an effort to increase the number of protected roads.

Posting prompt reporting

Dear Editor,

Thank you for posting the results of the VIR hearing of last Thursday evening on your website on Saturday; though I'm not sure but it may have been posted on Friday.
This was a meeting I was unable to attend and I am grateful to have been able to
read good coverage just two evenings after the event.
So often the papers wait a little longer for posting on the website but because this was an important meeting, you provided a report that the public could read at the earliest opportunity.

Kind regards,

Christopher Pike
