Who’s in charge of Garfield County? Hint: Not the BOCC

Ever since May 2, when the GarCo BOCC scrapped the Battlement Mesa HIA, there have been several letters to the editor condemning their actions. Even The Paper weighed in with an editorial on May 6:  Commissioners should see Battlement HIA through to completion. The Editor said, in part:

No matter what the commissioners’ intentions in abandoning the study, they give the impression that they are not concerned about honoring their commitments, and worse, that they are incapable of following a project through to its completion.

Which brings up a good question. What were “the commissioners’ intentions”? Why did the BOCC terminate the study?

The study links methane in water wells to dispersed natural gas – from drilling – seeping through aquifers – which is what Lisa Bracken has been saying for years but the BOCC didn’t listen to her either.
