Frank Alfone to replace Jay Gallagher after 10 years at helm of Mount Werner Water District 29.5.2015 Steamboat Pilot
The board of directors of Mount Werner Water District in Steamboat Springs didn’t have to look far to find a successor for general manager Jay Gallagher.

The statements outline regulatory guidelines for land use across more than 100 million acres of federal lands in the West that serve as habitat to the greater sage grouse. “It is the heart of a conservation effort that I think will redefine how we look at and oversee our landscapes collectively for generations to come,” U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell said of Wyoming, home to nearly 40 percent of the nation’s sage grouse population, in a press conference Thursday at a historic Wyoming ranch. “There were 98 different plans rolled up that went into this process… We are actually releasing a range-wide strategy that covers 10 of the 11 ...
