The City of Delta spent some $30 million on an overpass so that ambulances would not have to wait at the railroad crossing. The voters turned down an ambulance district request for additional funding so there would be no additional delays in ambulance response to an emergency. This effectively negated the saving of time because of the overpass. Was the city foolish to spend the money or were the voters foolish to turn down the request?
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.
