From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

“Apparently as a result of the emphasis on farming and perceived diminution in responsibility, Gary Barber, the company’s president and chief operating officer, whose primary work experience and expertise lie in municipal water operations, without notice and unexpectedly notified the company on (Monday) via email of his resignation,” Two Rivers founder and CEO John McKowen said in a news release.

“No comment,” said Barber, adding that he will now be looking for other opportunities.

Barber chairs the Arkansas Basin Roundtable, a group that meets monthly on basin water issues. He previously represented El Paso County water interests and was the first executive director of the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District.
