Commissioners Approve Special Events Permit for Bent-Prowers Cattle

Members of County DHS and Child Protection Team


The Prowers County Commissioners held a brief regular meeting Tuesday afternoon, March 26th following their morning work session. Following a public hearing on the matter, the commissioners approved an application for a special events permit for the Bent-Prowers Cattle & Horse Growers Association, set for Saturday, April 6th at the Lamar Community College Equine Arena.  This event will mark the 150th anniversary of the Association.

A request from the Sand and Sage Round-Up Fair Board was approved. The board was seeking permission to hold a beer garden on the County Fairgrounds property during the September Pedal and Plains event.

The commissioners approved two proclamations during their meeting, one for recognition of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month and the other proclaiming April 8—12 as the Week of the Young Child.

The commissioners also ratified approval of a letter to the Senate State Affairs Committee members regarding Trafficking and SB 19-149. The letter reads in part, “We have two major highways that pass through our county and trafficking is always a concern.  By learning survivor stories we can also learn how to prevent future trafficking.” The bill would continue the work of the Colorado Human Trafficking Council until September of 2024 instead of having in sunset in September of 2019.
