CIVIL ACTIONS

RMCC Inc. and IEC Real Estate Holdings v. Park County Commissioners.; A 10 a.m. April 13 hearing was set. The plaintiffs have filed for a declaratory judgement on the case, claiming the defense has not responded to their claims. The defendants have opposed this entry of default and are asking the court to reject it. In February 2020, the plaintiff opened a second separate case alleging they were not formally notified by the commissioners of a zoning change. The plaintiffs claim the zoning change disrupted the investment-backed expectations of RMCC and IEC, and is accusing the county of failure to follow development standards and regulations, statutory and regulatory procedure, violating Wyoming law for continuation of existing uses, and faulty resolutions in its decision. Because of such, the plaintiff is demanding a reclassification of the zoning. The commissioners made motions to dismiss both cases, which was denied for the second case. RMCC and IEC are petitioning the court that the commissioners did not adequately inform them of a zoning change to their Powell property in April 2019.
