More expensive, more stringent

County fire chief proposes fire district to Carbon County Council of Governments

Carbon County Fire Chief John Rutherford gave a presentation to the Carbon County Council of Governments (CCCOG) on July 21 at the Valley Community Center in Baggs on the need for a fire district in Carbon County.

There were representatives from all municipalities with the exception of Encampment and Riverside.

“Thank you for letting me address you about this topic for Carbon County,” Rutherford said. “This organization allows the municipalities to work together, yet have differences of opinion.”

Rutherford said, in the past, it was the municipalities who responded to emergencies.
