Commissioners Adopt Open Meetings Policy

This policy allows the County to create a better understanding of the policies and practices the County has in place.  In 2017, Delta County Citizen’s Report filed a lawsuit against the Commissioners, alleging the County was in violation of Colorado Open Meeting requirements.  The County has not violated Colorado Open Meetings requirements, but agrees with Delta County Citizen’s report that there is always room for improved communication.  The County has been and remains open to reasonable improvements to how we share information with Delta County citizens. To that end the County has engaged in discussions with Delta County Citizens report.  These discussions have been beneficial and have helped created a common understanding of how the County complies with Colorado Open Meetings requirements.  As an outcome of these discussions, the County has committed to adopting a formal policy that clearly outlines our procedures for formalizing existing practices, complying with open meeting requirements, and outlines the additional steps we take to improve transparency.  We believe this policy will help the public understand how to access information about formal meetings and agendas.
