Visiting officials plan to dedicate time between 9 a.m. and noon for “walk up” hours at the El Jebel Community Center. They will be available for meetings with organizations, businesses, or local officials to discuss issues, concerns or suggestions related to Eagle County. They will also be available for after hours meetings and community events if given advance notice.
“We are very excited to be hosting regular weekly office and meeting time with our folks in the Roaring Fork Valley,” said Shroll. “The goal is to have better dialogue and communication throughout the valley. We also hope this will be an opportunity to grow strong connections with our partners like Basalt, Aspen, Snowmass Village, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs and Pitkin and Garfield counties.”
Roaring Fork Fridays is a developing program, and the county is eager to receive feedback about the visits. The goal of the program is to better foster relationships with people invested in Eagle County in the Roaring Fork Valley, and staff are willing to explore solutions to improve the county’s presence there and facilitate two-way communication.
