Rio Blanco County Commissioners voted to approve Scott Marsh to the position of Road and Bridge Director, which drew from an extensive pool of highly qualified applicants from around the United States and ended with final interviews earlier in April.
Marsh comes to Rio Blanco County with over 26 years of experience working for the Colorado Department of Transportation retiring as a Deputy Superintendent. Additionally he has a long history of living in Northwest Colorado and is well acquainted with the challenges of maintaining roadways with varied weather conditions.
The Rio Blanco County Road and Bridge Department is responsible for maintenance and repair of over 900 miles of road and 65 bridges in Rio Blanco County, in addition to overseeing the management of the Solid Waste Landfill.
Commissioner Jeff Rector extended his welcome to Marsh and stated “I feel very comfortable in the county’s decision for the new Road and Bridge Director position and believe that with Scott’s leadership and expertise this department is heading in the right direction.” Rector continued to say “Scott has visited with staff and both district supervisors to see what he needs to do to move forward. I truly believe that Scott will be an asset to the Rio Blanco County and the Road and Bridge Department.”
