Garfield County Applies for Tier-1 Public Land Management Grant

Rifle—Garfield County hopes to avoid future conflicts and disputes over public land policies and management with a coordinated plan.  The county approved an application for a Tier-1 grant through the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.  The $100,000 grant will help fund a federal lands policy review plan.  Commissioner Tom Jankovsky says the ultimate goal is to categorize the different lands and align them with resource management plans.  He believes this coordination and consistency plan could be a useful tool for the next 20 years.
