Junction man selected for panel on rafter, landowner problems

Rafters float on the San Miguel River in the town of Telluride. Ingram Falls, which helps to fill the river, is seen in the background.

A Grand Junction man was among 17 people Gov. Bill Ritter named to a new panel Monday designed to handle problems between rafters and private landowners.

Thomas J. Klienschnitz, president of Adventure Bound River Expeditions, will be one of the charter members of the River Access Dispute Resolution Task Force, a panel created to help develop a dispute-resolution process between rafting companies and private landowners.

The panel stems from a measure introduced during this year’s session of the Colorado Legislature that would have allowed rafters to traverse private land without permission.

The bill died, but partly because the governor vowed to create the task force to come up with ways to prevent future conflicts.
