Community Briefs, Oct. 3

Fraser Valley Rec District survey

The Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District (FVMRD) is soliciting input on a comprehensive parks and recreation needs assessment study. As part of this process, consultants are conducting a random mail survey of residents of the FVMRD to better understand resident desires in planning for future parks and recreation improvements, programs, open space acquisitions, and other investments in the community.

Surveys are being mailed to 1,800 randomly selected residents in the District and will begin arriving in households this week. If you do not receive a survey in the mail and would like to complete a survey, you can still participate by going to beginning Oct. 3.

To thank residents for their time in completing the survey, a drawing will be held for a chance to win one of five $50 FVMRD gift certificates.

All information gathered from the surveys will be presented in aggregate format; individual responses will remain confidential; and no names, addresses or phone numbers will be identified.

Waiter Wars

Friday, Oct. 3, from 4-9 p.m., Bill Edelstein and Sean Richardson will be waiting tables at Maverick’s Grille in Granby. All of the tips during that time will be donated to the Granby Rotary’s scholarship fund. Last year the event raised more than $1,000. This will be the third year of the competition, Bill won the first year and Sean won the second. Tips are tax deductible.

Meet sheriff candidate Schroetlin

Brett Schroetlin, Grand County’s Republican candidate for sheriff, will be conducting a “get to know your candidate” meeting on Sunday, Oct. 5, from 1-5 p.m. at the Bumgarner Building In Kremmling (corner of 6th and Central). The get-together is an opportunity to not only meet the candidate, but also to address concerns, issues and rumors about the future of law enforcement in Grand County. Refreshments will be served.
