IN THE NEWS: Delta County breaking law, lawsuit alleges

By Gary Harmon/Grand Junction Daily Sentinel

The Delta County Commission’s decisions ranging from adoption of its budget to supporting an oil project should be invalidated, a lawsuit says.

The commission posts its agenda behind locked doors on Friday nights, preventing access by the public, and frequently changes the agenda over the weekend, according to the lawsuit, which was filed in Delta County District Court by Delta County Citizen Report.

“Significant policy making has occurred in these unnoticed or improperly noticed meetings,” the suit says.
