Lottery proceeds generate $59,851 for RBC

RBC I Rio Blanco County entities received $59,851 in Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) Conservation Trust Fund (CTF) payments in 2001.
The CTF is one of three funds from the net proceeds of the Colorado Lottery.  The department distributes CTF dollars quarterly on a per capita basis. Funds can be spent on projects that involve the acquisition, development, and maintenance of new conservation sites and for capital improvements and maintenance for recreational purposes on public sites.
“In these challenging economic times, the Conservation Trust Fund supports recreational infrastructure and maintenance activities that might otherwise fall by the wayside without these dollars.” Brown said. “We’re proud to administer these funds so that local governments can realize their goals.”
In 2011, the Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District received $17,599 from CTF; Rio Blanco County proper received $8,694; the town of Meeker received $11,185; the town of Rangely received $10,069; and the Western Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District received $12,305.
