Montrose commish takes sick leave
The Montrose County Commission will operate with two members as Chairman Ron Henderson recovers from an undisclosed illness.
Henderson’s illness was announced at the commission meeting on Monday. The two remaining commissioners, David White and Gary Ellis, constitute a quorum and can conduct business in Henderson’s absence.
Montrose County spokeswoman Katherine Yergensen said federal privacy law prevented her from discussing the nature of Henderson’s illness, but said he was expected to return to his job, though it wasn’t clear when that would occur.
Henderson is in his second term on the commission.
