Create a Community Advisory Committee
Urge the County Commissioners to create a Community Advisory Committee for allocating the $11.6 million in American Rescue funds
Garfield County will receive over $11.6 million dollars from the American Rescue Plan.
The county has significant leeway in terms of how these funds are spent.
A Community Advisory Committee - including representatives from a cross-section of our community, community members with a diversity of professional expertise, and representatives from local municipal governments - would help the commissioners invest these funds as strategically as possible.
Folks across our county deserve to have a voice in important decision-making processes. The most effective solutions are the ones that take our entire community into account.
