DMEA kicked off the Morning Buzz circuit in late February in Montrose with resounding success.
"It's always energizing to see such great response from our membership. We had so many wonderful conversations with our members ranging from home efficiency to solar panels to our work with Tri-State regarding local renewable energy. We don't provide a formal presentation, so our members can talk about the exact topics they are interested in," said DMEA CEO Jasen Bronec.
"We'll have a great cross-section of employees from both DMEA and Elevate, so we should be able to answer almost any questions. And if we can't, we'll make sure to connect our members with someone who can," said Bronec.

A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
