Grand Junction, Colo (KKCO) --- The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has launched an investigation after criminal accusations were made against Mesa County for calculations in the establishment of a building enterprise.

Two former Mesa County employees are leading the investigation efforts. Bill Voss, former Director of Finance, is making claims that the reporting of the TABOR revenue limitations for 2005 and 2006, where the commissioners had enacted two resolutions, were done illegally.

After researching evidence he said, "There was a liability booked for excess TABOR of about $1.7 million, so then I looked and you would expect to see a tax credit for next years mill levy to refund this money, but there was not any."

County Administrator Tom Fisher said he is taking these allegations seriously, but is not concerned about the investigation finding anything wrong.

The investigation is expected to last six months.
