At their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 11, the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (PAWSD) Board of Directors revisited the issue of the draft release of liability for the Laverty family regarding the conservation easement transaction fee agreement.

The item was previously discussed during the Jan. 14 PAWSD meeting.
