Clear Creek avoided parts of transparency law in hiring new county manager

Clear Creek Courant: In hiring its new county manager, Clear Creek did not publicly announce the names of its three finalists at least two weeks before making an offer to the selected candidate, which the Colorado open meetings law requires.

On April 30, the county announced Brian Bosshardt as its new county manager after the Clear Creek Board of County Commissioners approved a contract with Bosshardt the previous day.

However, at no point during the selection process did the county publicly announce — in a press release, on social media, on its website, etc. — its finalists before hiring Bosshardt.

Clear Creek officials maintain the county remained in compliance through other means.
