Dear Editor: It was reported in last week’s Plaindealer that Ouray County government had grown 70% from 50 employees in 2003 to 85 in 2023. Simple research indicates that our population grew from 3,880 to approximately 5,006 in 2023, a 29% increase. The county bureaucracy is growing at a rate of 241% faster than the population!
