The search is on for a new attorney for the Town of Crawford. Long-time attorney Jim Brown informed the town council several months ago that he was stepping down after the April election.
At its work session on Feb. 21, the council reviewed proposals from two firms, J. Davis Reed, P.C. in Montrose and Hoskin Farina & Kampf P.C. in Grand Junction.
It was pointed out during discussion that the law office of J. Davis Reed is working with the towns of Hotchkiss and Paonia.
Mayor Wanda Gofforth asked council members to review the proposals, and to be prepared to vote on a new town attorney at the regular meeting on March 7.
The seventh annual Eckert Crane Days, the annual viewing of the sandhill cranes migrating north from New Mexico through Colorado's West Slope, will be March 16-18. Representatives from the Black Canyon Chapter of the Audubon Society (BCAS) will be at the viewing site east of Eckert at Fruitgrowers Reservoir, 9 to 11 a.m. each day, to answer questions and provide binoculars and spotting scopes.
