The Carbondale Board of Trustees met last night. Among items on the agenda, including the swearing-in of Luis Yllanes, there was ample focus on recent bear activity within and around the town. John Groves, representing Colorado Parks and Wildlife, warned that the activity could worsen and persist into November. The trustees also waived an ordinance to allow Rio Grande weed-eating goats to travel through town and adopted a resolution affirming Carbondale's support for the immigrant community.
