Commissioners Reject Road Guards

(Silverton) The addition of proposed metal traffic guards along portions of Molas and Coal Bank Passes was firmly rejected 4 -1, with Commissioner Faith Hope, of Hope’s Church Supply casting the single vote in favor of the project.

The other Commissioners, Harry Altman of Harry’s Towing and Auto Wrecking, George Poindexter III of Silver Lining Funeral Home, Dr. Samuel Butcher of Four Corner’s Hospital and Ves Smith of Smith’s Ambulance Service all felt that the guards were an unnecessary expense.

     Readers will note that Butcher and Smith will begin their respective tenures in October but were allowed a practice vote on this measure to better prepare them for their coming terms.
