Editorial: In its most important decision, Ridgway town council fails on transparency

Ouray County Plaindealer: In the past few months of attending Ridgway Town Council meetings, we’ve had the opportunity to hear robust public discussion on topics ranging from water rate structures to the ethical reasons for banning plastic bags from stores.

We’ve heard 30-minute discussions centered on debate over what a “small” versus large plastic bag constitutes, or what thickness of reusable plastic bags should be allowed and other minutia.

This council is no stranger to public discussion and those who regularly attend meetings can attest, each councilor has his or her own opinions and isn’t afraid to make their views known, even on the most finite details.
