El Paso County officials will board a bus on Wednesday, Aug. 26, and tour various projects across the county. Among tham: the new jail buildings being erected on Las Vegas Street, Myers Road improvements, a Falcon Town Center, Judge Orr culvert, Eastonville Road project and the household hazardous waste facility.
It will be a long day, starting at 8 a.m. in front of the County Administration Building, 27 E. Vermijo Ave., and ending at 3:30 p.m. If you’re interested in tagging along, call Pam Podhirny at 520-6812.
The county has been conducting bus tours periodically for several years. Commissioners usually attend, along with several staff members to explain each project. It’s a good way to get updated on how tax money is being spent on the ground.
