Kane appointed vice chair of Parks and Wildlife board

BASALT – Bill Kane of Basalt was elected vice chairman of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission in the newly appointed board’s first meeting July 12.

Kane was reappointed to the parks and wildlife commission earlier in the month by Gov. John Hickenlooper. He is a representative of parks and outdoor recreation. His term expires in 2015.

Kane is town manager in Basalt. He recently announced he is leaving that position in August to return part-time to the private sector.

The parks and wildlife board was shuffled after the state parks agency and division of wildlife merged last year in a cost-cutting move. The combined board of 14 positions was whittled to 11. Kane survived the merger. He was formerly on the parks board. Dorothea Farris of Carbondale wasn’t reappointed. She was formerly on the wildlife commission.

The commission sets policy for the parks and wildlife agency.
