The Trinidad City Council this week decided to take the Arkansas River Power Authority to court after the organization — of which Trinidad is a member — was allegedly not notified about a couple of ARPA board meetings.

After a one-hour executive session during Tuesday night’s meeting, the council voted unanimously in favor of asking the city attorney’s office to pursue legal action ARPA, a cooperative electric generation and distribution provider for six Colorado communities, including Trinidad.

The move came after City Manager Ed Gil de Rubio revealed last week that ARPA’s board of directors had held two meetings in January without notifying the city government of Trinidad or posting notice of the meetings at city hall. These meetings are believed by the city manager and the council to be in violation of Colorado’s open meetings law, as well as ARPA’s contract with the city as a member of ARPA.

A lawsuit by the city against ARPA is expected to be filed soon in Las Animas County District Court in Trinidad.

The council on Tuesday also reviewed a retail rate comparison for January showing information regarding the member communities of ARPA, along with rates for power from two other power companies.

The city manager said ARPA’s operating loss for 2010 was $1.3 million.

The complaint alleges that ARPAs handling of the Lamar Repowering Project shows a clear absence of comprehensive planning. A major renovation of the Lamar plant was intended to enable the plant to produce the power needed by ARPA members for years to come. However, the plant had to be shut down after a December malfunction and is in need of an estimated $1 million in repairs
