Ridgway council calls special meeting after newspaper raises Sunshine Law issues

Ouray County Plaindealer: The Ridgway Town Council will meet during a special meeting Monday night to finalize their decision to offer the town manager job to Preston Neill, who is currently the assistant town manager of Avon.

However, the council already made its decision on Nov. 8, as reported previously in The Plaindealer.

The council selected Neill for the job and directed their consultant to negotiate a contract with him last week, at the end of a long day of interviews the finalists had with councilors and stakeholders.

The special meeting Monday was scheduled after the Plaindealer raised concerns over whether the meeting the council held was properly noticed, according to state open meetings laws, and whether the decision made by councilors was made in accordance with state law.
