Montrose commissioner has heart surgery
Montrose County Commission Chairman Ron Henderson is recovering from heart bypass surgery.
Officials said he was ill when Henderson missed the commission’s Monday meeting.
Henderson “is currently recovering with physical therapy and rest,” county spokeswoman Katherine Yergensen said. “He is looking forward to returning to the office when his health permits.”
Henderson and his family “offer their thanks to Montrose Memorial Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital for their caring staff, as well as thanking the public for their support and prayers,” Yergensen said.
The other two commissioners can conduct business in Henderson’s absence as two members constitute a quorum of the board.
