March 31 beginning at 2 p.m. On the agenda are updates regarding the county’s local response to the coronavirus known as COVID-19.

Pandemic response topics related to the pandemic include community funding opportunities to support those impacted economically; a topic continued from the March 26th meeting. Also on the agenda is a review of a concept for grocery delivery services potentially provided by the county’s taxi/shuttle services, including Chaffee Shuttle. It was originally presented during the March 26 meeting and further developed since that time.

To keep ahead of the rapidly-changing environment, the commissioners will handle other items of business, including a renewal of a letter of support for the Valley View School, as well as consider an amendment for the CHA 397 Granite Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

Upcoming events and county land use activities all face potential impact from the current local emergency declarations related to the coronavirus pandemic. Commissioners will discuss whether to allow a potential amendment to the contract due dates for the Live Nation Seven Peaks Festival schedule for Labor Day weekend outside Buena Vista.

Commissioner’s final agenda item is an update from the newly-established Chaffee County Economic Recovery Task Force.
