Monument Town Council removes redaction from scrutinized attorney invoice

The Tribune: An invoice to and paid by the Town of Monument for legal services which had been the subject of scrutiny due to it containing redacted information has been now lifted from its attorney-client privilege.

The Monument Town Council special meeting April 26 was devoted to voting on steps to receive legal advice from interim town attorney Bob Cole regarding the removal of attorney-client privileged information on an invoice from Sherman & Howard Law Offices. Prior to the meeting, the invoice included redacted information deemed attorney-client privilege which became the subject of a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request from former Mayor Pro Tem Kelly Elliott.

During the council’s April 11 special meeting, council members voted to approve a resolution authorizing payment of the invoice while maintaining attorney-client privilege related to it. The services provided by Sherman & Howard started late December 2022 after the town attorney at the time, Kathryn Sellars, resigned and council directed Town Manager Mike Foreman to hire an attorney to represent the town and its staff.
