At the Rio Blanco County Commissioners meeting Nov. 23, Chris McCourt, center, who is manager of the Colowyo Mine, presented a check for $5,000 to Rio Blanco County. Colowyo made the donation as a way of saying “thank you” to the community for ongoing support over the life of Colowyo operations and the support shown during the recent Office of Surface Mining process concerning the environmental assessment to re-evaluate environmental effects of the originally proposed and currently approved mining plan modification for the South Taylor/Lower Wilson Permit Expansion Area at the Colowyo Coal Mine. Donated funds will be used to make enhancements to the county fairgrounds facilities in Meeker.
