Todd Markley, human resources director for Delta County Joint School District #50, is retiring at the end of the school year. Jim Farmer, longtime principal at Garnet Mesa Elementary School, will take his place, with additional duties in middle/high school curriculum and new teacher training.
On Monday, the school district named Joe Mock as Farmer's replacement. Mock will make the move from Lincoln Elementary School, where he has been assistant principal. The school district is also looking for a new principal at Delta Middle School.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
