Steamboat briefs: Sustainability council holds monthly meeting Wednesday

Yampa Valley Sustainability Council will host its monthly community meeting from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 5 in Room 113/114 at Centennial Hall, 124 10th St. in Steamboat Springs.

Crosscut Reclaimed, a Kremmling-based company that supplies premium barn wood and other reclaimed building products, will be presenting YVSC with a donation. During the recent WinterWonderGrass music festival, Crosscut Reclaimed raised funds for YVSC through a giveaway of a unique table made from wood sourced from the Pabst Brewery in Milwaulkee, Wisconsin, and signed by artists performing at the festival.

Directly following the community meeting at 12:30 p.m. there will be a presentation by Community Committee for Education on the group’s latest proposals to address school facilities needs.
