Garfield County to Invest in 2 Units at Rifle Habitat Project for Possible County Worker Housing

John Stroud; post independent

Garfield County Commissioner Tom Jankovsky had been leaning toward a $50,000 contribution to Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley’s Wapiti Commons project in Rifle. But an intriguing perk convinced him and his fellow commissioners to up the ante.

Commissioners voted 3-0 to contribute $200,000 to help defray costs to build the 20 new homes, which are to be made available for purchase to qualified buyers earning 80% of the area median income (AMI).

In exchange, two of the units are to be reserved for qualified county government employees to purchase.
