County's legal counsel uphold planning appointments

Email News Alerts

Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne and the county's outside counsel have rejected a COLA challenge to planning and zoning appointments made in late 2012.


The appointments were to the Hubbard County Board of Adjustment and Planning Commission.

The lakeshore activists contend the appointments should have waited until a new county board was seated in 2013. Otherwise the appointments disenfranchised newly sworn board members, who make and/or vote on those appointments.
