Delta County will take a “wait and see” position in the wake of withering criticism and opposition aimed at the federal government’s decision last week to list the Gunnison Sage grouse as a threatened species under the Endangered  Species Act.
The Delta County Commissioners had little official reaction to last week’s announcement by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).

The Abraham Connection homeless shelter has been awarded a $300,000 grant to assist with construction of a 4,600-square-foot facility at 5th and Silver in Delta.
The cost of the facility is estimated at $736,367.

Christmas tree permits are now on sale for national forest and BLM lands. A BLM permit is valid for trees located on BLM lands only, just as a Forest Service permit is only valid for trees located on National Forest System lands.

In the interest of consistency, Bill Heddles Recreation Center will no longer adjust hours seasonally. After months of tracking usage, the following year-round hours have been adopted: 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Delta County’s Health and Human Services department (HHS) has been awarded regional recognition for excellence in its management and client care practices in women’s health.
A plaque signifying the honor was presented to HHS nurse practitioner Pat Sullivan by the county commissioners during their regular meeting on Monday.
