I recently spent a morning at Breckenridge Montessori as a representative of the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies. You have a gem hiding in plain sight on Main Street! I watched happy children sharing their day with calm, friendly teachers who obviously knew them well. As the children went about their activities I heard stories of the weekend spent with families.

Your community is lucky to have such positive and professional educational opportunities for young children. Getting it right during the first six years of life makes a difference for a lifetime. And living in a town like Breckenridge doesn’t hurt either!

I would like to thank multiple agencies and individuals for spending numerous long days helping our town during the Montezuma road washout. Everyone involved exceeded my expectations! Our town issued a voluntary evacuation, and we were notified that we might not have access to town for 10 days. Instead, we had access over an installed footbridge within 24 hours.

As the construction was in process, we were allowed access through a complimentary shuttle at various times throughout the day. Every part of the experience was handled professionally, accurately, considerately and quickly. Everyone put the needs and safety of Montezuma residents first in every decision that was made.

There was a command team that met twice a day every day for two weeks during the situation, and multiple times to follow up after the washout.

I would like to specially thank:

JP, Rick, Vic, the entire Road and Bridge crew, Sheriff Minor, Capt. FitzSimons, Undersheriff Woodman, the sheriff’s office, Thad Noll, Julie Sutor, Summit County government, Joel Cochran, Dave Parmley, Jeff Berino, Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue, Robert Jacobs, Emergency Search and Rescue volunteers, Summit Stage, Red Cross, Summit County Ambulance, Paul Hinkley, the Fazendins, all property owners who allowed us to access town through their private property and anyone I’m forgetting. There were so many wonderful people who pulled together to help all of us make a difficult time easier. Thank you! It did not go unnoticed.

Mayor, Montezuma
