The Town of Silt cancelled a controlled burn Wednesday of a wetlands area within city limits. The burn was cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions but officials hope to reschedule it later this spring. Local activist Peggy Tibbits says the burn is dangerous and the town has avoided public input. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh has more.
The Garfield County Public Health office runs many programs that go unnoticed but are a safety net for people in need of services. They give vaccinations, secure fresh food, get kids dental care and administer many other preventative and environmental health programs. Last week, Public Health Director Yvonne Long detailed the work in a year-end report to the county commissioners.
