Delta County Citizens Report alleges Delta County violated open records law

Montrose Press: After repeated denials of public records requests, the Delta County Citizen Report is taking Delta County to court.

A complaint filed by the nonprofit media organization accuses Delta County Administrator Robbie LeValley of violating the Colorado Open Records Act four times. The DCCR in its February suit asks for a show-cause hearing and a finding that Delta County was wrong to deny access to financial records the media nonprofit had sought. The DCCR is also seeking attorney’s fees.

The Delta County attorney could not be reached for comment on the suit. According to the Delta Combined Courts, a response from the defendant is pending. The matter was scheduled for a setting hearing by phone on March 14.
