WILDLIFE COMMISSIONERS HOST PUBLIC MEETING IN GLENWOOD
Colorado Wildlife Commissioners Roy McAnally of Craig and Tom Burke of Grand Junction are planning a public meeting in Glenwood Springs to get input on wildlife issues. The meeting will be held at the Glenwood Springs Community Center (100 Wolfsohn Road) on Tuesday, Feb. 12 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The meeting is open to anyone who wants to attend.
While Wildlife Commissioners are typically available any time to discuss issues, from time to time they hold more formal meetings around the regions they represent. These meetings give the Commissioners the opportunity to visit with constituents about a wide range of wildlife topics. The meetings do not have set agendas, but typically include time for a brief opening statement from the Commissioners and then questions or comments from the public. Division of Wildlife staff members also attend the meetings to help answer questions or provide additional information.
The Colorado Wildlife Commission is an eleven-member board appointed by the governor. The Commission sets Colorado Division of Wildlife regulations and policies for hunting, fishing, watchable wildlife, and non-game, threatened and endangered species. Commissioners also oversee DOW land purchases and property regulations.
