For the record

For the record, there was an error in the article “Parks board, projects still an issue for county,” which ran in Friday’s edition of the Daily Press on page 1A.

The County Parks and Recreation Commission is a ten-member board composed of five appointed district representatives, two county commissioners, the county drain commissioner, the road commission chair, and the planning commission chair. As stated in the article, there was not a quorum for the commission’s first meeting, however those that did attend — county commissioners Kelli Van Ginhoven and Matt Jensen and District 2 Representative Brian Godfrey, held a work session and heard from the public on a variety of topics.

No votes were taken.

Though Delta County Administrator Ashleigh Young stated in her administrator’s report presented at the June 18 Delta County Board of Commissioners Meeting that “we did not have a quorum due to the removal of board members and a resignation,” a quorum would have been possible with only one district representative if the county commissioners, the county drain commissioner, the road commission chair, and the planning commission chair had all been in attendance.

There are currently three district representative openings on the parks and recreation commission, following the county board’s removal of Former Delta County Conservation District CEO Rory Mattson (District 4) and Allen “Snuffy” Ettenhofer (District 3) from the commission. Raymond Grew, who had been appointed to represent District 2, resigned from the commission on June 5, just a day after the county board removed Mattson and Ettenhofer.
