Many questions are circulating in the Colorado City area regarding actions the Colorado City Metro District Board is taking related to seeming financial irregularities.

We, as a Board, with the assistance of the CCMD staff, have discovered missing documents and financial discrepancies. After a brief internal investigation, the Board of Directors agreed that the irregularities were sufficient to bring in professionals.

We voted, unanimously, on June 12, 2019 in open session to turn over all information to the Pueblo County Sheriff (PCSO). They began a thorough investigation. We have regularly contacted the PCSO for updates and they have been unable to release any information of the ongoing investigation.

This is the same Board that voted, after a lengthy executive session on August 29, 2018 to accept the resignation of the District Manager.

A recent article, which was printed in the New Mexico newspaper Rio Grande Sun, and has been

circulated locally, makes a number of references to credit card usage. Those reported charges are all prior to 2016 so the current Board does not have sufficient information to comment on these items, as none of us were on the board until May of 2016.

James Eccher

Colorado City Metro District Manager
