Plaindealer’s request for county records heads to court

Ouray County Plaindealer: A district court judge will decide whether the public has access to disciplinary records for the two Ouray County employees who have been at the helm of the COVID-19 pandemic response.

The Ouray County Plaindealer requested performance reviews and disciplinary records for Health Department Director Tanner Kingery and Emergency Manager Glenn Boyd after a January meeting, in which County Administrator Connie Hunt curtailed their hours and referenced a personnel issue involving the two employees.

During the joint policy meeting held Jan. 7, Hunt said she would be reprioritizing Boyd and Kingery’s work. In response to elected officials’ questions about what would be removed from their workloads and how overtime would be handled, she responded nothing would be taken off their plates and stated it was a “personnel issue” and did not provide more details.
