Group suing Strasburg Fire Board over open meeting violation

9NEWS (Denver): The five-member Strasburg Fire Protection District board is facing a lawsuit, accused of violating state law regarding executive session.

A group of concerned citizens, Friends of Strasburg Fire, filed a complaint last week in Adams County Court, alleging the group went into executive session without a vote and discussed items that aren’t allowed in executive session.

“We deserve a government that is responsive to the public that is led by public servants who have the public’s interest at heart,” said Brad Jones, a Strasburg volunteer paramedic who leads Friends of Strasburg Fire.

Friends of Strasburg Fire began recording board meetings earlier this year, as the group debates a conflict of interest regarding vehicle maintenance. Don Sherer, the elected president of the fire board, owns an auto repair show that holds the contract to maintain vehicles for Strasburg.
