Brighton City Council executive session vote may have violated Sunshine Law

FOX31 (Denver): The city of Brighton might have violated its own city charter and state law concerning its attempt to go into executive session at an Oct. 2 city council meeting.

The Problem Solvers were tipped off to make a public records request for audio recordings of that meeting because it might shed light on the city’s effort to fire City Manager Philip Rodriguez at Tuesday’s city council meeting.

The  Brighton City Council voted 5-3  last week to suspend Rodriquez for unspecified personnel issues with intentions to formally terminate him Tuesday.

Supporters of Rodriguez suspect the real reason Mayor Ken Kreutzer and a majority of the council want to fire Rodriguez is because he exposed the existence of a $70 million fund created by water overcharges to residents.
