MCTA 2013 budget in limbo

Board members claim exclusion from budget process by Moffat County Commission

The Moffat County Commission is scheduled Tuesday to present and approve its final 2013 budget. But members of one volunteer organization are unhappy about being excluded from this year’s budget process. On Wednesday the Moffat County Tourism Association Board convened to discuss its proposed 2013 budget, the status of which is unknown. Many MCTA board members voiced their disapproval, charging the commissioners with hijacking their budget and prohibiting MCTA from participating in discussions about 2013 funds.
