At the July 6, 2020, Work Session Meeting there was a lengthy discussion regarding the illegal & Unpermitted Dump Stations in the RV Park. Director Cooper suggested forming a “Team Committee” or a “Construction Committee” to review all construction related projects on the Ranch. He additionally volunteered to serve on the committee along with Director Monty Riddle.

Has Cooper’s Construction Committee met regarding the current construction issues surrounding the septic holding tank fiasco? Checked in with DEQ or Jefferson County?
