County names mental health advisory board members

Contact: Chris Lindley, Public Health & Environment Director, 970-328-8819 or

May 15, 2018 – The Eagle County Board of Commissioners has appointed 10 members to its newly formed Mental Health Advisory Committee. The committee is tasked with prioritizing programs and services to be funded through county’s voter-approved Mental Health Fund, as well as other sources.

Members of the committee represent health care and mental health care providers, law enforcement personnel, and community advocates across both the Eagle and Roaring Fork valleys.

Members appointed for three year terms:

  • Michael Holton 
  • Greg Daly
  • Christopher Montera
  • Agnes Harakal

Members appointed to two year terms:

  • Gary Schreiner
  • Jackie Skramstad
  • Michelle Muething

Members appointed to one year terms:

  • Jeannine Benson
  • Stacey Gavrell
  • Carol Hawk 

All appointments begin on June 1. Following the expiration of the one- and two-year terms, subsequent members will serve three years, to allow for staggered appointments.

“We want to thank these folks for sharing their time and expertise,” said Commissioner Kathy Chandler-Henry, chair of the board. “They will help ensure we meet our community’s most critical mental health needs in the most effective ways possible.”

In 2017, voters approved ballot issue 1A, which created new sales and excise taxes of up to 5 percent each on recreational marijuana. To help the marijuana industry adjust to the taxes, the county set the initial collection rate at 2.5 percent, with anticipated future increases of .5 percent each year until the 5 percent limit is achieved in 2024.

Collections began on Jan. 1 and have generated just over $118,000 through the first quarter of 2018. Once the full rate is enacted, collections are anticipated to reach approximately $1.2 million annually.
