A Delta County organization plans to file suit Tuesday against the Delta County Commission, contending that the county’s budget process is flawed and was conducted without appropriate transparency.
The suit will seek a permanent injunction against “routine practices” by the county that contravene Colorado Open Meetings laws and laws governing the drafting of local government budgets, JoAnn Kalenak, president of Delta County Citizen Report, said.
The county’s budget process passed muster, County Administrator Robbie LeValley said.
The County Commission on Monday approved the county’s $11.6 million general fund.
