Eagle County OKs rebuilding backcountry hut

How they voted: Yes: Fisher, Stavney, Runyon.

What it means: The Fowler-Hilliard backcountry hut burned to the ground last September, due to a lightning strike. The commissioners approved a plan to rebuild the hut, part of the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association’s backcountry hut system in the forests between Vail, Eagle and Aspen.

How they voted: Yes, Stavney, Runyon, Fisher.

What they did: Acting as the county’s liquor licensing board, the commissioners approved a liquor license for the coming Taste of Vail. They also approved an ownership change for the bars and restaurants at golf clubs at Cordillera, and a temporary permit for a new Kirby Cosmo’s BBQ location in Edwards.

How they voted: Yes: Runyon, Stavney, Fisher.

What it means: The commissioners approved a plan that will eventually move the baggage screening system at the airport out of the main lobby. The work, which will ultimately cost more than $3 million, will probably be done in the summer of 2011, pending approval of a grant. The work would cost the county about $900,000, which would come out of airport funds. Local taxpayers don’t pay into those funds unless they fly into or out of the airport.

Present: Peter Runyon, Sara Fisher, Jon Stavney.
