From the Sky-Hi Daily News (Tonya Bina): “A law adopted to protect Hot Sulphur Springs’ water supplies sent resident Yvonne Knox to Town Hall to point out its unforeseen consequences…

“‘We never heard about it until we got a copy of it after it was passed,’ she said. ‘It’s hypocritical — you turned around and did exactly what you accused someone else of doing.’

“Admitting that the law was a ‘knee-jerk” reaction to Grand County’s proposal to locate a trash transfer station just outside town, Hot Sulphur Mayor Hershal Deputy said the town board’s primary intent was to protect the Colorado River upstream from the town’s water intake.”
