Montrose County Attorney Robert Hill has tendered his resignation after serving the county for 9-years.
County media relations specialist Katie Yergensen says that Hill announced his resignation on Wednesday to pursue other career opportunities. Board of Commissioners Chairman Ron Henderson says that Hill “has been a valued, hard-working asset to Montrose County during his entire employ.” Hill’s last day of work as County Attorney will be August 31st.
Yergensen adds that the Board of Commissioners will evaluate and possibly tweak the County Attorney’s duties before recruiting a new lawyer for the county.
Montrose has been identified along with five other Colorado Counties as contiguous counties declared disaster areas due to ongoing drought conditions; six other counties were declared as primary natural disaster areas. The Declaration was made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday. The declaration paves the way for Montrose County residents in the agriculture industry and ranchers to apply for Farm Service Agency financial assistance.
