The Board of County Commissioners on Monday, Aug. 15, officially confirmed Karen Koenemann as the county's new public health director.
She steps into the role long held by Bonnie Koehler who retired from the post earlier this year.
Koenemann comes to Delta County from public health work with Eagle County.
Commissioners were in receipt of a confirmation letter from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment attesting that Koenemann meets qualification requirements for her new position as established by the CDPHE.
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.
