During his tenure as Montezuma County Commissioner, Keenan Ertel has supported conservative fiscal policy, oil and gas development, and transfer of federal public lands to the county. But outside of his public life, Mr. Ertel also practices yoga.

KSJD's Gail Binkly and Austin Cope discuss how audience pressure led the Montezuma County Commission to open Planning and Zoning Commission interviews to the public.

The Montezuma County commissioners have set two meetings to hear public input on a proposal to close one end of Road BB where it meets with Highway 491.
