Council fight paralyzes city leadership in small Colorado city

9NEWS: The mayor of Dacono said his city is in “crisis mode” without a city manager or city attorney — and with continued infighting and dysfunction after another tumultuous city council meeting this week. 

The trouble spilled into the public eye in mid-February when four city councilmembers voted to fire the longtime city manager in a surprise move that occurred without public discussion.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) then found evidence that the four council members violated open meeting laws, and two are now facing a recall election. Their council meeting Monday devolved into chaos during votes to authorize funds to pay for the recall.
