Maybe they should work on getting to the bottom of the shenanigans on the Airport they are suppose to share some oversight of rather than picking a new fight that will be worth cash to consultants and get nothing done. How many tax dollars has Utah spent on this matter, and how many miles of dirt two track ‘highways’ has it laid titled claim to?  Wouldn’t those dollars serve the people of the county and state better going to improve the actual roads, bridges, and traffic-bearing infrastructure of the county?  This is ‘fiscal’ responsibility?

Peter,

The county has an attorney on staff already so the fiscal impact is minimal. We understand your agenda to make all of the federal land in Mesa County roadless, but trying to make that agenda into a fiscal argument is disingenuous.

Maybe the Commissioners should start with the road that the previous Commissioners closed up on Glade Park.

My ‘agenda.’  Whatever, make up whatever straw man you wish and go forth and slay it.  Utah has spent millions and millions on this very issue and has ‘claimed’ one road.

Say what you will about millions of dollars being spent Peter. It’s simple paperwork at this point at little cost to anything but your roadless agenda.
