An Environmental Commission meeting was held at the Environmental Programs Division on Thursday, April 16 with the objective to oversee the development and implementation of a comprehensive and effective program for the protection of air quality throughout the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. The Commission is looking to establish the rules and regulations applicable to the Reservation Air Program and conduct review of appealable administrative actions. The Commission is set to include a number of six members with three appointed by Tribal Council and three appointed by the Colorado Governor, John Hickenlooper. The Commission will consist of a chairman who will be elected annually. The State of Colorado Environmental Commission will hold regular meetings and address regulations on air quality issues throughout the reservation.
