Vervloet gets up to speed

By Annette Brand

Tony Vervloet, Delta County's local government designee (LGD) for oil and gas operations, has been busy since taking over from Bruce Bertram, the county's LGD since 2002.

Vervloet attended the Citizens for Healthy Community meeting regarding Bull Mountain at the Paonia Library. The meeting was attended by 40 to 50 people expressing an interest in the Bull Mountain project and its potential impact on the community.

A few weeks later, Vervloet met with Natasha Leger, representative for Citizens for Healthy Community, to discuss CHC's positions on oil and gas operations in the North Fork.

He attended a site inspection at an SGI well site, and toured Gunnison Energy operations with Brad Robinson.
