Anger marks Nucla airfield contract approval

MONTROSE — Montrose County commissioners are wrangling over a Nucla airfield contract.

A debate has arisen over whether there was a conflict of interest in awarding a construction contract to Montrose County Airport Advisory Board member John Reams. County officials say the contract went through a proper bidding process.

According to the Montrose Daily Press ( ), commissioners ultimately approved the $462,000 contract to Reams Construction for the Nucla Hopkins Field terminal and site improvements project. The money comes from a Colorado Department of Transportation Aeronautics Board grant, which requires a $44,000 match from the county.

Conflict of interest?  In most of the rest of the world, yes.  By Western Colorado standards, not by a long shot.
