County commissioners and Rampart Helicopter services have still not reached an agreement after their mitigation meeting on June 12. Rampart works as a fire fighting service in the county, owned by Jeff Armstrong. The operation is based on unincorporated land, which is zoned as Agriculture One. Armstrong has a permit which allowed him to build a barn on the property, which he uses as a hangar. Neighbours Ken and Laurel Maupin have voiced complaints about Rampart and the noise the helicopter makes. They have commented that they can still hear the helicopter even when they are driving their lawn mower. Rampart has been called out 18 times this year. The meeting will be continued on July 24. An executive session for legal advice for rezoning was suggested, reports Castle Rock News Press.
