Community’s teamwork re-opens Dam Road

Kudos and congratulations to the leadership of the four towns ” Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and Silverthorne ” the State of Colorado Homeland Security, the state legislative representatives, the Summit County Sheriff (what a job John Minor did), and the town’s police department’s for returning the Dillon Dam Road to the “people” of Summit County.

Job well done. It proves that when the jurisdictions work together, great results are achieved. It also sends a very strong message to the Denver Water Board that they may own the “dam,” but if you want to play hard ball, be prepared for a good old-fashioned tussle with this community. Mr. Barry’s comments during the opening of the road press conference was less than impressive; however, he did promise a different attitude toward working with this community.

Our leaders need to continue to work together to keep the pressure on the Denver Water Board to assure the citizens of this community they will not be working behind the scenes with their own agenda that maybe contrary to the well being of our community.

Again, the Denver Water Board may own the reservoir, but they do not own the heart and soul of Summit County that truly shined on July 25, 2008, at 4 p.m.
