In response to a lawsuit filed by the Delta County Citizen Report, alleging a lack of transparency in the noticing and conduct of county commissioners' meetings, county administrator Robbie LeValley issued the following press release:
Delta County Board of Commissioners has consistently followed Colorado State Statutes. Colorado Revised Statute 24-6-402 (2)(c) directs the Board of County Commissioners to designate annually at the local public body's first regular meeting of each calendar year the public place for posting meeting notices. At the Jan. 2 Board of County Commissioner meeting, the board designated the front entrance of the Delta County Courthouse located at 501 Palmer Street, Delta, to be the official location for posting of meeting notices. In addition, as has historically been done and technology allows, a courtesy copy will be placed on the Delta County website at www.deltacounty.com.
During a preliminary hearing in Delta District Court on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Judge Steven Schultz found probable cause for second degree murder charges against Heather Jones.
Jones previously faced three counts in the shooting of Ryan Redifer in Paonia on Jan. 12, 2018 -- assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and violation of a protection order.
