Ouray County commissioners cautioned to follow open meetings law

Ouray County Plaindealer: Ouray County Attorney Carol Viner cautioned commissioners they need to be wary of becoming too relaxed during public meetings and they need to adhere to state open meetings laws, even as the pandemic drags on and meetings continue to be held virtually.

Viner cautioned commissioners at a May 19 virtual meeting about becoming too informal.

“If you are representing county and are on a Zoom meeting you should not be drinking and when you are in a public meeting, a BOCC meeting, no texting. I don’t know how to handle this. I can see things going south quickly,” Viner said.

Viner also said commissioners should not be reading their email or researching things online during meetings.
