By Mary Alice Murphy
Grant County commissioners at their work session after department head reports and presentations, on June 25, 2019, heard in the review of the regular meeting agenda from County Manager Charlene Webb that no applicants had applied to be on three county advisory boards—Lodger's Tax, Shooting Range and Tu Casa. The appointments were removed from the regular meeting agenda and would be re-advertised.
Assessor Raul Turrieta asked if elected officials could apply. County Attorney Abigail Burgess said she would look into the issue.
