Routt County Commissioners are anxious to hear the new amended regulations from Gov. Polis on Sunday. They’re hesitant to discuss specifics on local variances until they hear what the governor plans to do statewide. Some of the local issues that the commissioners are ready to address are youth vs. adult sports leagues. Here’s Commissioner Doug Monger.
The local commissioners also want to be ready with a possible variance request for gyms, and size limits for gatherings.
Offices in the old Routt County Courthouse in downtown Steamboat are scheduled to open Monday. Barriers and orange cones are being set up for people to wait in line outside of the courthouse. Mark Collins is the interim county manager.
But residents are still being asked to try to do any county business online from home, if you can.
The Class of 2020 at Steamboat Springs High School is celebrating their graduation this weekend, with a parade and specially produced video ceremony. Lara Craig is one of the school district board members who has a graduating senior.
The fun starts this afternoon with a special private ceremony at the Meadows Parking Lot, which is actually for seniors at Steamboat Springs, Soroco, and Yampa Valley High Schools. Hayden High School students have been invited but no word if they’ll be attending. Steamboat Radio’s Brian Harvey is the emcee. Then around 4 p.m., the seniors will loop Mt. Werner Circle and drive down Lincoln Avenue, through downtown Steamboat Springs. Feel free to cheer them on as they drive by. However, it isn’t an official “parade,” so all cars will need to follow all traffic laws on Highway 40, especially as they travel through downtown.
