Laura Palmisano spoke to Hinsdale County Commissioner Kristine Borchers about the county's response, including installing new barriers and signs, and efforts to educate OHV users.

The island and peninsula on Lake San Cristobal is now owned by Hinsdale County. A group of Lake City residents raised $200,000 to help buy the 10-acre property. Great Outdoors Colorado also awarded a $1.3 million grant to help make the purchase. Laura Palmisano speaks with Hinsdale County Commissioner Kristine Borchers.
