Topic of Interest Air Quality

With the passage of Senate Bill 19-181 and its directive to reduce oil and gas site emissions, the Weld County Board of Commissioners knew the state was coming after not only the energy industry but also agriculture - two important and thriving industries for Weld County residents. The state's mantra claiming to be focused on protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public is meant to imply that local government is neither interested nor capable of working in the best health interests of its residents. The fact is, nothing could be further from the truth.

County elected officials, as well as the majority of department heads and county staff live right here in Weld County. They raise their children and grandchildren right here in Weld County. There is no one better suited to make decisions about the health, safety and welfare of county residents than county residents and their local elected officials.

We all want clean air to breathe and clean water to drink; to assume otherwise is, well, un-Colorado.

So the board has developed this page to share information with Weld County residents about what their local elected officials are doing to protect Weld County's health, safety and welfare. We will provide documentation as well as links to resources to ensure residents have access to material that will help them make decisions for their families, their homes and their lives.

Sincerely,
The Weld County Board of Commissioners
