Victims will get a say in cleaning up Black Forest.
One of the most common complaints following any natural disaster is that the victims have little say in the recovery.
But El Paso County Commissioner Darryl Glenn, who is leading the recovery for the Black Forest fire, says he believes our community can avoid that pitfall. With that in mind, he's hosting a series of meetings dedicated to listening to those who have been impacted by the fire. Glenn says he'll use the information gathered at those meetings to tweak the way the county is handling the clean-up.
The next meeting is this Thursday.
