Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
(Durango-AP) -- La Plata County Commissioners are considering asking voters to temporarily increase their property taxes to help pay for this year's firefighting costs.
County commissioners also have decided to lift a ban on charcoal barbecue grills, and provided residents with tips to use the grills safely.
Commissioner Bob Lieb says the tax-increase proposal wouldn't go to voters in November unless it gets unanimous support from the commissioners. County officials don't know yet how much the county's share will be for costs of fighting the 77-thousand-acre Missionary Ridge fire and cleaning up afterward.
Commissioners have voted to give notice to elections officials that they intend to place at least one question on the November ballot. Officials say the question or questions will be decided later.
