Attorney claims Pitkin County broke open meetings law

The Aspen Times: A Pagosa Springs attorney who successfully obtained private recordings from the Aspen School District in May now has the Pitkin County government in his aim.

Attorney Matt Roane took civil action last week against Pitkin County, accusing it of violating the state’s open meeting laws Oct. 20 when it didn’t broadcast the entire public portion of the Pitkin Board of County Commissioners work session.

Because of the pandemic, the county’s administration building is closed and its board meetings prohibit public attendance; however, the county broadcasts commissioners meetings on its home page.
