Pitkin County admits fault in open meetings case

The Aspen Times: Admitting its failure to comply with the state’s Opening Meetings Law, the Pitkin County government settled a lawsuit where its commissioners were accused of doing public business in private.

The agreement was reached in December. It came after Pagosa Springs attorney Matt Roane filed a court complaint in late October saying the county failed to broadcast the Board of County Commissioners adopting a motion Oct. 20.

That day, commissioners held a public work session that started at 1 p.m. and was streamed on the county’s website and Grassroots TV.
