RBC | Spring is just around the corner and we know a lot of the ranchers in the area will be moving their livestock to other pastures. Community Counts Colorado (CCC), an organization that works to help promote open communication between the community and energy/extraction industries, would be happy to provide information about your sheep or cattle move to help protect your livestock and riders as well as industry and residents traveling on highways 13 and 64 and County Road 5 (Piceance Creek). Please e-mail, call or text Nita Smith, executive director of CCC, at email@example.com or 303-916-4009 to provide route information and approximate time of your livestock move (even at a moment’s notice) to share with the Rio Blanco community and industry database. The county commissioners have supported our work in RBC since 2013, contact Smith for more information about CCC. Industry motto: Think safety first—remember trucks cannot stop very fast and if they know in advance to be on the watch for your move it might make a difference in someone’s life that day.
