Crowder shares grant informationVery accurate article in Courier concerning Sanford’s and Conejos Count’s dilemma. In the article, the grant I referred to is HB17-1221 is for rural Colorado, and has specific population demographics. As you will be able to decipher from the bill, every county in the San Luis Valley would qualify for grant monies to combat drug situation and free up county budgets for law enforcement.
As an example, Pueblo County Sheriff’s department received 53k on their grant application to combat illegal grows of marijuana which freed up monies for other functions.
