Save the Weld County Council

This petition had 153 supporters

Today, August 9th, a small group of former County officials proposed to the Weld County Board of Commissioners that the County Council should be dissolved.  This would require voter approval of a change to the Weld County Home Rule Charter. 

However, the Weld County Council is the oversight group for elected officials in our County. If it were eliminated, there would be nothing hindering the unethical and corrupt actions of the Commissioners (or other officials).  Even the State would be limited since Weld is a Home Rule County.   For example, the Council has  commissioned a performance audit of the BOCC because of alleged money - wasting and other unethical actions.  If the Council didn't exist, there would be no way to do this. 

This Weld County petition is intended to demonstrate to the Commissioners the strong objections of the citizens to this attempt to consolidate their power and eliminate oversight. If you are a Weld County resident, you will want to support this effort.
