Delta Commissioners Hear Controversial Building Code

Delta County Commissioners passed the first reading of an ordinance that, if adopted, would be the first building code for an unincorporated part of the county.

The ordinance would cover the newly formed Highway 92 Overlay District, which is east of Delta and was initially passed following a public hearing nearly two weeks ago.

There is controversy surrounding the proposal, with some saying because the area could possibly be annexed into the City of Delta some time in the future, the ordinance could hurt home owners in the district and simply meshes with the future plans of Delta.

A second reading and possible adoption of the measure will happen in mid-November.
