Two landowners sanctioned
by the Upper Republican Natural Resources District (URNRD) in June for bypassing irrigation flow meters want an adjudicatory hearing to address the board’s decision.
Landowners Jack Bond of Greeley, Colo., and Bruce Kramer of Wauneta notified the URNRD last week they wanted a hearing on the decision.
URNRD Manager Jasper Fanning said the NRD’s rules and regulations provide for such a hearing.
Fanning explained an attorney will be selected to serve as hearing officer. The hearing officer will then set the guidelines for the two parties, such as how facts will be entered into the record, who may testify, etc.
The district’s attorney, Joel Burke, said the hearing is similar to a court proceeding.
