GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO News)-- The city is giving residents a chance to hear first hand about projects going on in the near future.
In fact, they're hosting a series of neighborhood meetings. Tuesday night, GJ police and fire were there to chat and answer questions-- specifically about Measure 2B, which goes into effect this year. Police says the measure will bring in more than 140 new officers.
