BoCC to hold public forum

The Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners will host the first public forum of 2009 at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, in the commissioners’ meeting room in the county courthouse.

Three times a year, in those months in which there are five Tuesdays, the commissioners invite the community to attend an informational session.

In June, the public forum will be in Chromo, and in September the forum will be in Arboles.

The forum on March 31 will include:

• A presentation on SB 194, “The Colorado Public Health Reauthorization Act,” and how it affects the community.

• Year-end 2008 financial update.

• Open public question, answer and comment session.
