GJ airport considers new interim boss
Grand Junction Regional Airport officials later this month will consider how to replace Executive Director Kip Turner on a temporary basis.
The airport authority board is to consider resumes of interim successors to Turner, who is leaving May 26 and will begin work in June at Eagle County Regional Airport in Eagle.
The board also will consider a request for proposals for a search firm to find Turner’s permanent replacement.
The airport board also is working on a request for proposals for a consultant to guide it on an evaluation of the airport’s minimum standards for companies doing business with general-aviation tenants there.
Legal advice free for juvenile offenders

The project, which is sponsored by the Colorado Criminal Defense Institute and the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender, will help people determine if they are eligible for any of those services or to apply for post-conviction relief, according to a press release.
