Unacceptable decision by Garfield County commissioners

Dear Editor:

The decision made by the Garfield County commissioners on May 2 to terminate the Health Impact Assessment being conducted for Battlement Mesa before its completion is appalling. This Health Impact Assessment was requested by hundreds of Battlement Mesa residents who are facing an unprecedented level of oil and gas production within their community. This action by these commissioners demonstrates their disregard for the health and safety of their constituents as well as their complicity with the oil and gas industry.

The citizens of Garfield County should demand the immediate resignation or recall this Board of County Commissioners; they deserve better.
