Commissioners Offer Direction Regarding Summer 2020 Events

RBC Website_Commissioners Update-01

During a work session on Tuesday, the BoCC, County Attorney Todd Starr and Public Health Director Alice Harvey clarified the process that will be requested from event coordinators for summer events within Rio Blanco County.  

The commissioners maintain the message that they have no control or authority over county events other than in the use of county-owned facilities or resources. 

If an event utilizes county resources (including facilities, funding, staff assistance, etc.) the commissioners are requesting that the event coordinator submit an event plan to the county.  The form is available below.  Public Health and the BoCC will be reviewing plans and making decisions weekly during BoCC meetings as to whether or not that county resource can be used during the event.  


If an event utilizes town resources, please fill out the form below and it will be reviewed by Public Health if requested and forwarded to the town. Each town will have their own protocol that the county/BoCC has no control over.

For private and other events that do not use county or town facilities or resources, the county website ( will have up-to-date recommendations and as always, Public Health is available for individual consultations/recommendations if requested by the event coordinator(s). Events that fall under town jurisdiction will need to contact the individual towns, as they may have a different protocol.

 The BoCC and The Department of Public Health appreciate your social and personal responsibility and will continue to support all businesses and events in any way possible.
